Our archive has some resources that may be helpful to individuals researching their ancestors in the Harbor Springs area. However, we do not have vital records (birth, marriage, death) or property records. Individuals should consult the relevant county, state or federal agency for these items.


We offer genealogy appointments geared towards helping guests learn to use the society’s subscription to Appointments are coordinated by curator Beth Wemigwase and are generally an hour long. For members of the Historical Society, one appointment each year is free. For any subsequent appointments, and for all non-members, there is a $25 fee.
