Hobbies: Genealogy and Researching The Early Pioneers of Lakefield Township, Saginaw County, Michigan.
It is now December of 2015 and I have been gathering information of Lakefield Township about eight years. There is many more names that need to added to the website. My research into my personal ancestry has taken me to various libraries, court houses, and township halls in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. While in these locations, I found large amounts of reference material including books written by local people about their lives, neighbors, and the area where they lived.
Myron F. Gulick has written two wonderful books loaded with details about the early life in Lakefield Township. But these two books were the only collection of information on Lakefield Township that I could find. Because of this I decided to try to put together more information about the early pioneers of Lakefield Township. I have used early plat maps, Mr. Gulick's books, newspaper articles and obituaries, Della Miller McKay collection of obituaries from newspapers; U.S. Census records, birth – death – marriage records, personal accounts, the Records of Lakefield Township, and whatever other bit of information I come across in my search for data for the individual biographies (sketches) of the early pioneers of Lakefield Township. I like to include pictures of the people I write about so if you have a picture I could include with one of my short biographies, or if you have any questions or corrections, please contact me. Also, please source me if you use any of my information.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a look around my website, I hope you enjoy!
