Mt Clemens Public Library's LH&G Department's June Programs

We are sharing the Mount Clemens Public Library's Local History and Genealogy Departments's June programs. 

If a program is hybrid the Zoom link is usually on the library's Face Book page or the Library Events Calendar near the time of the event. MCGG has added these programs to our Southeast Michigan Genealogy Events Calendar as well which is probably a little easier to read.

Tonight, Tuesday, May 21, at 6 p.m. in-person at Mount Clemens Public Library and on Zoom, the program is: Schools in Mount Clemens and Surrounding Area - 1947-1960. Public and religious schools in Mount Clemens have a long history. This talk presents an overview of the city's public and religious schools. The presenter attended one of these schools, the same one his mother also did, three short blocks from his home. Later he spent three years in a school operated by a church some miles away. The talk ends with a discussion of his attending Mount Clemens High School.
