For over 40 years, the Macomb County Genealogy Group (MCGG) has been an organization for genealogists in Macomb County, Michigan, and the metro-Detroit area to learn about their chosen hobby, share their experiences, help each other and give back to the genealogical community.
Sponsored by the Mount Clemens Public Library (MCPL), the Macomb County Genealogy Group has met year-round since its beginning in 1973. Currently, meetings are held every other Friday at 1 p.m. in the lower level of the Mount Clemens Public Library.
Our Friday meetings will rotate between:
- Invited guests or members speaking on a variety of informative topics
- Resource Development Sessions where members get together to work on a variety of projects such as indexing court journals or scrapbooks. These indexes are placed on the library website to benefit researchers no matter where they live.
- and our annual events (i.e. Christmas Party, Auction and Potluck Picnic).
In addition, MCGG hosts a genealogy program series called "Let's Talk...Genealogy" on the second Wednesday evening of the month. Discussions are held on various topics and attendees share their experiences and brickwalls.
Outside of our regular meetings some of our members attend an ancestral writing class twice a month, while others (including some out-of-state) abstract funeral home records; read cemeteries; index yearbooks, church records, newspapers, title abstracts, proofread, or do data entry.
