Michigan County Histories and Atlases

The Michigan County Histories and Atlases Digitization Project is comprised of 428 digitized titles (many composed of multiple volumes) published before 1923. The collection offers all members of the community free keyword searching and page-by-page access to digitized reproductions of Michigan county histories and atlases as a resource for historical and genealogical research. The collection is made possible, in part, through a generous Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant. Additional funding was provided by Michigan Council of Library Directors institutions and a Michigan Digitization and Preservation for Access grant. Titles were selected from Frances Loomis's Michigan Biography Index (Detroit: Detroit Public Library, 1946), William Miles' Michigan Atlases and Plat Books (Lansing: State Library Services, 1975), Bentley Historical Library holdings, and the Research Publications microfilm publication County and Regional Histories of the Old Northwest.
