MEMBER BENEFIT: BRICK WALL BREAKER

A Special online benefit for Members of WMGS

We have a small, dedicated group of volunteers who will check personal resources, search records, compare notes and otherwise make extraordinary efforts to assist you in breaking down the Brick Walls in your family research. Most resources are for Michigan (& the Midwest), New York and New England, but we are not limiting your requests to those areas only.

Our guarantee: We'll use our combined resources and shared experience to at the very least lead you to a few new places to look. But our goal will be to find that missing piece of information to help you get back another generation or two! What have you got to lose?

Here's what you need to do.
  1. Be sure you are a current member in good standing. If you have any doubt, just email wmgs@wmgs.org and we'll verify your name against the membership list. (If you received a Michigana within the last few months that has this year's expiration date on the label then you're OK)
  2. Send an email to wmgs@wmgs.org. The more information you provide, the better the chances of us making a new find for you. DATES & PLACES are IMPORTANT.
  3. Be patient. This service is free to WMGS members. Breaking Brick Walls is not necessarily an easy task.
  4. For now, we have a limit of one Brick Wall request per membership year.

Thank you!
