The Genealogy Group meets every Monday @ 9:00 a.m.

Bring your research and further the documentation of your family's history along with others sharing similar goals. Spend a few hours in a group setting with volunteers and local community members willing to point each other toward new sources that may uncover those stubborn missing pieces.

*Please note that if Crawford AuSable schools are closed due to weather, 
Genealogy Group is also cancelled.*
