An Overview of the Local Government Records Project at the Archives of Michigan” with Andrea Gietzen of the Archives of Michigan. In her talk, she will explain the details of how she, the Local Government Records Archivist, has been travelling around to Michigan’s 83 counties, meeting with probate court staff to collect Probate Court records, and why this is being done.

Ms. Gietzen will also share with us her knowledge of the types of records that are typically getting transferred (specifically for this project),  the overall process of how this happens, some of the challenges, and the current status of the project.


The DSGR Board of Directors has voted to extend every active member's membership by one year due to the suspension of publication of the DSGR Magazine in the 2018-2019 publication term.   Your membership expiration date will be extended automatically as soon as possible.
