Winter Hours for Newaygo County Museum and Heritage Center!

Now Open Year 'Round!

The Newaygo County Museum and Heritage Center is now open year 'round. Through April 1 st, we will be open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 12-3

As always, our research room is open when the Museum is, or by appointment Monday- Saturday. Please email Toni Rumsey at archivist@newaygocountyhistory.org


All skill levels welcome, whether you are unsure how to get started with your family history research, or have been doing genealogy for decades.

 

Have you been curious what those Ancestry “shaky leaf” commercials are all about? Want to learn more about what you can discover from taking a DNA test? Or have you spent years researching your family history and just want to meet with like-minded people? In this group, we’ll discuss all things genealogy, the study of family history. We’ll talk about how to research and share our own progress. This is the place to ask for advice, share the latest news, and learn about resources you may not know about.

This group is organized by Jamie Wasilchenko. Jamie is a museum professional and former collections manager at Newaygo County Museum. She has had an interest in genealogy for over 20 years and is looking forward to creating this new local forum for other family historians to “geek out” and share their research journeys.
