SeekingMichigan.org migrated to Michiganology.org on September 1st. You will be redirected in the coming weeks but be sure to bookmark the new website. The good news is that the 1943 Michigan Death Certificates are available on Michiganology. Thank you to the Archives of Michigan staff for all the behind the scenes work that was needed to make this the premiere online research resource for Michigan records.
