If you have an interest in finding your past, then this is the place for you! The Midland Genealogical Society has some resources to help you.

Here are some of the resources that are available as a member.


Your membership includes a subscription to our newsletter “The Pioneer Record”, the official publication of the Midland Genealogical Society. The Pioneer Record is published in September, November, February and April.


Midland Genealogical Society volunteers are available in the Midland Room of the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library weekday afternoons from 1 – 4 pm to answer your questions and to assist you in locating materials.

Volunteers will do a limited search using Midland County resources available in the library. Extensive research can also be done. Please send SASE for more information on extensive research. Queries should be mailed to:

Donations to the Midland Genealogial Society are always appreciated and welcome. Such donations to the MGS are used to purchase additional resources for the Genealogy Room collection.

Queries are free to Society members.
