Seeking Michigan

The Archives of Michigan is excited to announce that is will be redesigning it’s existing content management site, www.archivesofmichigan.org.  This is a joint project with the Library of Michigan.  Plans include expanding content including over 1,000,000 death records, 70,000 land patent records, photographs and maps.

We have contracted with Greg Storey and Airbag Industries, Inc.  The new site will be rebranded to “Seeking Michigan” or a similar concept.  The idea is to convey a broad approach to the “heritage collections” available at the Library and Archives.  You can see samples of Airbag’s work at: www.airbagindustries.com

We hope to launch in late Summer or Fall 2008.
