Seated on the south shore of Lake Superior is Ontonagon County with over 1,300 square miles of forests, lakes, streams and shoreline.  This county has a distinguished history of logging and mining, and is the site of the first telephone system in Michigan.  The oldest standing log home village in the United States is located at Old Victoria, near the village of Rockland.  The North Country Trail bisects Ontonagon County on its route to the Lewis & Clark Trail in North Dakota.  In this county of over 100 waterfalls, 150 inches of snowfall annually is an average.

This website is being maintained by Colleen. If you have anything to contribute, any suggestions for inclusion on the site, or simply want to send a friendly greeting, just email me! I'd love to hear from you.

Our Michigan State Coordinator is Jan Cortez. Should a county you're interested in not be available for adoption right now, Jan has a waiting list she can add your name to. Perhaps you might volunteer to assist the current coordinator.

Please note: I do not live in Michigan and am unable to help you with local research.
