Kalamazoo County, Michigan


Welcome to our website and thanks for stopping by!



Welcome...  After you have taken time to review our site, please sign our guestbook...



This is a historical website for Kalamazoo County.


This website will provide historical information for all of Kalamazoo County, its townships, cities and villages.  We will provide documentation and photographs of historical buildings, places and people who made Kalamazoo County what it is today. 


This site just began in June 2007, so we are in the process of evolving.  Please check back and watch our site grow.




It is our apology that we have not made many improvements to our site this past winter.  We have been concentrating on backlog work for our cemetery site and have not had resources to update this site.  Hopefully soon we will begin adding our some of our vast information to this site.  I welcome any local researchers to assist in gathering information

Thank you for your patience.

We dedicate this site in memory of

Richard 'Dick' L. Branch

(1941 - 2007)


Prior to Dick's passing he made a request that all his genealogical and historical information be passed on to Scott.  He did this knowing it would be preserved for years to come.  We are in possession of his materials and will be going through it over the upcoming months.




We are looking for old photos, post cards, documents and anything related to the history of Kalamazoo County, its people, businesses and history in general.  If you have anything you would like to donate (originals or scans)  please let us know.  Please note, that we can not accept any images from other sites.  Anything posted has to be owned by you or myself; sorry but it's the law.




I also host an award winning Kalamazoo County cemetery website titled:
