Death Records:

Actual death records for the State of  Michigan, years 1897 through 1920. We have found that the state records are sometimes more complete. They have added more death through 1938.

Find a grave is a site where you can add cemetery burials, pictures and data for your family members who've passed on.  Or you may find family members that you didn't know where they were buried and might get a marker picture that someone has shared.  A fun site.

Saginaw News Obits

Saginaw Public Library Obit Index

 Obits going back to the early years of the Newspaper, Many people from the Bay City area died in the hospitals in Saginaw. Bay County was known as East Saginaw before 1857, therefore worthy to search.

  The Latter Day Saints Church records they have collected over the years, an excellent site for those marriage and birth records we need to find, plus much more.  You do not have to be a church member to visit their library or search their site. These records are actual photos of the court records. We are very thankful for this site. (I'll put their Midland hours in later)
