Your Bucket List of Research Places

Ever so often and at least twice a week I receive news of another place we should be looking.

This  is like, your Bucket Lists of Research Places including Libraries.

Some I have been to, most I have not but would love to.

Camping at the Michigan State Archives for five days, would put a dent in my need of sources.
Knowing they are there, just have to be able to stay long enough to source them.

Why this facility? Because of the data it harbors for other places near that I so could use.
 Recently learn the JONES family (Dad's side) spent time in Michigan was a shocker.  It should not  have been. Michigan is between New York and Illinois.  Could never figure what path they took to  get to Nunda, ILL.  Amazing when someone else's book can help you with that answer.  Yes, it had
 Jones in it from New York.
 Best part would be I could be staying at our sons' home to do this research.

  1. Michigan is an awesome place to visit and conduct research. I hope you can make it to the archives one day. The best part of the Archives is that the library is in the same building. I have a few of the same repositories on my bucket list.
