Welcome to the Michigan Germanic Genealogical Society!

We also are in the process of sending our renewal notices out as well as new member notices for any persons who have inquired about membership. If you have not received your notice yet, you may go to the Join Us tab on the main menu and you can print, complete and send it in with money to become a member.

Our regular meeting schedule will be the second Monday of September, November, March and May at 7:30 pm.

Our new newsletter for June 2024 is currently available on the website under the “Newsletter” menu item at the top of this page.

It will be the first in a NEW format newsletter! Look for it, read it and give us feedback on what else you would like to see!

Latest new edition of the Partner Zeitung (MAY JUNE 2024) is now posted for download. Partner Zeitung is the newsletter of the International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP.) Previous copies of their newsletter can be found on the IGGP website (iggp.org.)

Social Media

We have a new menu item – Social Media on menu bar at top of page that links to a new page containing links to our Facebook pages and our new Twitter account. Please feel free to click on the menu item to look at what we are doing to provide content (currently we have three different pages and 1 Twitter account).

Email changes:

Note: Due to some email difficulties we have had to replace our info@miggs.org email with information@miggs.org. Sorry for this and we appreciate your patience in this manner! We have attempted to replace them everywhere on our website!

Resources upgrading to a Resource List

We have changed the website menu item from Resources to Resource List. It is an alphabetical list of resources categorized in three separate categories:

  • Resource Articles
  • Resource Websites
  • Resource Videos

These may split out into other groupings/categories as we get more entered but for now those are the breakdown. Please look under Resource List and look thru the lists – if you find a bad link report it to information@miggs.org.
