Our families give us indelible traits. We are each our own person, to be sure. We are each unique. Yet we have a connection with those who came before, those who survived so that we might survive. Thinking about this can boggle the mind.
Not everyone is interested in genealogy, and not everyone should be. But for those who are, it is a fascinating field of study. It can lead people around the globe in search of family. People have discovered long lost relatives in remote villages in the Alps. They’ve also learned something about themselves by learning about their ancestry.
Genealogy Research at the Library of Michigan is open to the public Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you think you’ll find some answers there, why not go and see?
The Library of Michigan is less than 30 minutes from our Eaton Rapids Bed and Breakfast. Travel here with a friend who is patient and thorough – a friend willing to help you be an ancestral sleuth. If nothing else, your search will be rewarded with a stay at our luxurious, historic inn.
Please see Genealogy for information about doing research at the Library of Michigan.
