New Policy Change at the Owosso Family History Library[edit | edit source]

Starting January 2nd, 2019, the Owosso Family History Library has changed to a “cashless” facility. We no longer will have a cash box and will not be charging for prints or copies made at the library. Only single copies of family history printing will be allowed. Personal or extensive printing should be taken to a commercial copy center. Visitors should bring their own flash drives for scanning photos and documents.
