Message from Matt-

This is an index of persons found in the book, Montague Area Centennial, which was compiled by the Montague Historical Society and published in 1967.  Hope this will be helpful in trying to locate family members or for anyone interested in the history of the White Lake area.

Please feel free to send along any additions or corrections and I will update my file and any copies of this index that I have distributed. I will also do lookups from this book.
