Michigan Biographical Index

A week ago Miriam passed along a link to the Michigan Biographical Index. Thank you Miriam! From the index I learned that several members of my Carlisle family were listed in the index to: Massie, Larry B. Potawatomi Tears and Petticoat Pioneers: More of the Romance of Michigan's Past 1992.

I quickly found the book listed on for a very reasonable price and ordered it. It came today and although they were only mentioned briefly, on two pages, it was a very interesting read. I need to check some of the facts as they differ slightly from what I've read before and I'll be writing more about that in a day or two.

Now that I've skipped to the part about my family and satisfied my curiosity there, I'm looking forward to reading more about the history of Michigan.

Hi apple love the new sideshow
photos. I found a few names in
the Michigan index but they wanted
$600.00 + for that book! A little
steep since it is a in-law not
a direct relative! I hope you have a good day!

Ouch! I'll consider myself very lucky that the book I found was only $7!
