Miscellaneous
  • Stories of Lansing, Michigan Families: Shopkeepers, Soldiers, Statesmen, and One Naked Lady. It is a 160 page book (8 ½ by 11 inches) written by Mid-Michigan Genealogical Society members in 2009 for Lansing'’s 150th celebration. The book features chapters on the ancestors of Lansing families (i.e. , Buck, Belen, Dungey, Priggooris, Sparrow, Turner and more, …over 900 names are indexed; included are sources and photos).

See Michigan Land and Property for additional information about early Michigan land grants. After land was transferred to private ownership, subsequent transactions were usually recorded at the county courthouse and where records are currently housed.
