Finding Family: State Genealogists Gain High-Tech Tools

The Lansing State Journal (Michigan) has an article by Hugh Leach that covers the Library of Michigan and some of the resources available to genealogists in and around Michigan, as well as kind of a general overview of how genealogy has changed because of computers and the internet.

Excerpts from the article:

The Library of Michigan will offer a free seminar devoted to Internet research and online genealogical resources from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. April 1.
Both Lewis and Betty Klaviter, another professional genealogist, praised the staff at the Library of Michigan for its knowledge and willingness to help genealogists, whether they are just beginning the hobby or are experienced.

Klaviter, who has done genealogical research in England, Ireland and New York City among other places, also spoke highly of the library itself. “There’s nothing like coming home,” she said. “The library is user-friendly, it’s in a gorgeous setting, and the research materials are wonderful.”
