MGC’s Archival Collections…Now with Digital Access!
The Midwest Genealogy Center has exciting news to share! We have begun to add digital archival collections to our website. Digital archival collections will help provide wider access to genealogists, especially those who don’t live close to MGC. These collections will be online and accessible through any browser. If you find images that you want, they can be downloaded to a computer and saved. Items such as letters, record books, photographs, and more will be easier to read and use during research.
