Getting Started Print Page


The MSU Libraries does have an interesting collection for genealogy resources including print and electronic resources. Take a look at what we have.


Before you start your research

  • Gather information from family members.

  • Write down what you have.

    You can use charts or software to make it more simple. You can find free charts here.

  • Look to see where you need information.

    At the most basic you are looking for name, parents, children, and birth, marriage, and death dates and locations.

  • Start with the most recent person and work back.
