Due to the size and complexity of the Berrien web site, a portion of the research data contained in the Berrien web site has been moved to another location. For Berrien County Navigation and Content - Part 2, go here.
In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the MIGenWeb Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all Michigan counties, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
My name is Joe Markovich and I am the MIGenWeb Berrien County coordinator. Submittals of historic documents, photos, and just about anything else genealogical related are always welcome for publication in this website.
If you would like to host a MIGenWeb County page, or assist the project in any other way, please contact the Michigan State Coordinator, Jan Cortez or the Assistant State Coordinator Joe Markovich. I am also the coordinator for the MIGenWeb county web sites of Oakland, Dickinson, Montmorency,Roscommon, Crawford, Menominee, Alcona, Manistee and Iron.
