Archives of Michigan makes 1921-1939 death certificates available online
The Archives of Michigan today made available images of Michigan death certificates from 1921 to 1939 for free on its website

The certificates join others from 1897 to 1920 that were previously made available. The Michigan collection now contains 2.6 million death certificates for researchers. Genealogy researchers, in particular, find death certificates useful while tracing family history. Read more...
Michigan Legal Help
The link to Michigan Legal help can be found to the left.  The Michigan Legal Help website was created to help people who have to handle simple civil legal problems without a lawyer. There are articles you can read to learn about a specific area of the law and toolkits to help you prepare to represent yourself in court. Some forms are completed automatically once you answer simple questions. The Michigan Legal Help website does not provide legal advice, and it is not a substitute for having a lawyer. If you need more help, you can search the website for a lawyer or community services in your area. The website does not cover all areas of law, but they are adding more information all the time.  Library staff cannot answer legal questions or aid in filling out legal forms.

    Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.
