The resources at Western Michigan University have attracted researchers since the early 1960s when the regional history collections were established. University and regional collections include photos, business records, and personal papers. Records on deposit from the Archives of Michigan for a 12 county area in southwestern Michigan include circuit court and other materials rich in genealogical resource possibilities. WMU also has two large collections of genealogical books covering New England and the Midwest. Collections are housed in an easily accessible state of the art facility.
