Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Monday, March 6, 2000

Well, my Digital Microfilm of the 1920 Tuscola County, Michigan census arrived today from Heritage Quest, so I guess you shouldn't pay too much mind to the stuff on their site that mentions only having up to 1900 available. It seems to run okay under Virtual PC on the Mac, considering, but Virtual PC is still like having a mouse soaked in molasses. :-P The image quality is so-so, but then, I haven't seen what it looks like on microfilm, so maybe it's just as grainy there.

Interestingly enough, in the same batch of mail was a note from the Census Bureau about this year's Census. :-)

Looking for a map of Tuscola County that shows townships so I know where to focus my search through the Census, I found a page about Tuscola County on something called US Gen Net, part of the American Local History Network. Dunno how this relates to RootsWeb and USGenWeb or if they're competitors or what. It's all Gen and Roots and Web and Net.

I also found a map on something called that shows the townships, but doesn't say what they are. Bleah. But there was a page about the local government that included an e-mail address and web site for the Registrar of Deeds.
