Alpena Death Records


Over the years, NEMGS has been active in many projects. Besides many publications (see next page for those available), projects include helping with the indexing of Michigan death records, and helping with the Civil War indexing project. We have been involved in microfilming area churches, cemeteries, and vital records. We filed and indexed the glass plate negatives of the Van Nocker studio. We continue indexing vital records, cemeteries, and newspapers.


Membership in Northeast Michigan Genealogical Society is available to anyone interested in genealogy. Networking with other genealogists is an excellent way to further ones own research.
Benefits of membership are many. They include: a newsletter (published four times a year), notice of meetings and special events, a chance to volunteer in worthwhile projects, a twenty percent reduction in the price of publications when purchased at monthly meetings, as well as the advantages of meeting with other genealogists. Members will also receive information regarding the Michigan Genealogical Council’s annual seminar and other similar events.
Members are encouraged to volunteer for ongoing projects in the society, to deposit their family history in the unpublished manuscript collection, to submit articles as well as queries for publication in the newsletter, and to participate in meetings.
The society is affiliated with the Michigan Genealogical Council and the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
Everyone interested in working on family history is encouraged to join the Northeast Michigan Genealogical Society.
Dues (by the calendar year) are $10 for an individual membership, $12 for a family membership, and $180 for a lifetime membership.
