A newspaper pool has been organized by the Library of Michigan, Detroit Public Library, and other institutions to gather and microfilm all known Michigan newspapers. These microfilms are available to public and university libraries that participate in interlibrary loan. A description of the state's newspapers is in the Fall-Winter, 1971–72, issue of Family Trails (see the "Periodicals" section).
The Family History Library has no Michigan newspapers, but does have:
Link, Muriel. Obituaries Index, 1933–1948. Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1976. (FHL films 1002031–44.) This index contains clippings from various Michigan newspapers.
The Historical Records Survey (Michigan). Vital Records from the Detroit Free Press 1831–1868. Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1973. (FHL films 927477–79.)
