The Saginaw Genealogical Society is actively working on many projects that will benefit people looking for information on their ancestors in Saginaw County.  Below you will see many people are working on one or more projects.  Some are only able to contribute in small ways while others contribute more.  If you would like to help in any way please contact the society by email at  Let us know how much time you are able to spend and what project you are interested in.  We will add you to that project.  If you only like to work from the comfort of your own home in your pajamas we can still use your help.  We have other projects we would like to work on but we need to complete these projects first.  The more people helping the quicker we can offer the information on the website.
