However, the site is not maintained by the Genealogical Society. Their holdings at the Escanaba City Library include numerous Canadian resources listed according to province, county, then parish, Delta County and Michigan resources, many genealogies, local histories and records, as well as histories, research tools, and other publications for most of the United States, Canada, and several European countries.
