Calhoun County, Michigan
Welcome. I hope you find this site a valuable
tool in your research.
The buttons on the left hand side of each page of this
website provide links to great data available for researchers. For
example, find marriage records under "Vital & Other Records." Want
to know the address of the County Clerk? Check under "Resources." Under
"History" you will find links to digitized images of several history
books for Calhoun County.
Note: My role is
to maintain this website. I usually cannot
provide information about specific individuals or
families you may be researching. You should
carefully read the CALHOUN COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY,
RESOURCES and VITAL & OTHER RECORDS pages (on the
left hand border). Check back often because I will be adding a
great deal of new data.
