Information includes cemetery records, as well as data from family group sheets submitted to the Shiawassee County Genealogical Society. While most of the information relates to Shiawassee County, there are no geographical limitations on the people included. Volunteers from the genealogical society continue to add to the database.
When you search the database, you search not only for the last name of the subject of the card, but also any other surname on the card (mother, father, spouse, spouse's mother, spouse's father) as well as the notes field.
- You are searching on the last name of the person who is the subject of the record, as well as the last name of his/her mother, father, spouse, spouse's mother, and spouse's father. The notes field is also searched.
- You may enter partial names. For example, a search for gill will pull up people named Gill, Gillet, and Gillman.
- To search for a name with a space or an apostrophe, substitute an underscore instead (the underscore is next to the zero key and requires the <Shift> key). For example, to find Van Dyke, type van_dyke. To find O'Neil, type o_neil.
