Want to Know About Kalamazoo?

I’ve recently been with our Local History Lead Librarian on three separate occasions when she did a tour of the local history section of our website. Each time I learned something new and interesting about Kalamazoo history and the resources our staff have compiled for genealogists and local history enthusiasts.

Confession: I am not a genealogist nor particularly a local history buff, but I am interested in an overview of our local history, sometimes need to look up some historical detail, and certainly respect the work of our staff to pull information together to create a new resource.

I invite you to explore this section of our website. Look at the photo gallery; marvel at the resources for genealogists in the Cemeteries of Kalamazoo County section; scroll through the general topics and essays – something is sure to interest you.

One of our strategic priorities is “discover your roots: genealogy and local history”. This section of our website is a major resource to meet that priority.

Come visit and use our local history resources – online or in the Local History Room at Central Library.
