Featured Content

1894 Michigan State Census This Internet site lists soldier's by name with their ward, township, and county as shown on the census of United States Soldiers of the Civil War Residing in Michigan, June 1, 1894, part of a state census. Since the 1890 federal census was partially destroyed in a fire, researchers can use this list of names as an additional tool beyond the census, to document their ancestors whereabouts during the 1890's. There are approximately 50,000 names listed. For further details, see the Michigan Census Wiki page.
