Detroit Society For Genealogical Research May Bus Trip to Lansing Archives On Saturday, May 10, DSGR will be hosting a bus trip to the State of Michigan Archives in Lansing for research. We will be leaving from Lot C at Lawrence Technical University at 7:30 AM and will then depart Lansing when the Archives closes at 4:00 PM. We will be back in Southfield at approximately 5:45 PM. Lunch is not available, so you are advised to bring one. There are pop and bottle water machines available.
As a bonus: THE STATE OF MICHIGAN LIBRARY will also be open on that day.
Cost will be $19 for DSGR members / $21 for non-members -- at today's gas prices, it might just be cheaper, not to mention more relaxing to leave the driving to us.
Both Members and Non Members can print the Registration Form and mail in the form and their check to the address on the form. Get the form on the DSGR website: DSGR.org
Members can pay and register on line by clicking the link. You will need to sign on to your DSGR Account to get access. You can also go to the Members Only area, sign on and then select Archive & Library PayPal
Non DSGR Members can pay and register on line using PayPal.
