Hey all, new to the site. Posted a newbie note the other night but no replies as yet. Hopefully just being overlooked and not ignored as on so many other sites where everybody knows everybody and newbies are pretty well shunned. I'm a Northern lower michigander, lived in the same town my whole life, 37 years now. Hopefully if the Island holds family lore for me I'll make it that way this summer in my genealogical roadtrips.

Thanks
Billie Jo

Believe me, Billie Jo, this isn't like other sites! I've only been on for a short while, and feel very much at home. These are some of the nicest people you'll ever want to meet! Welcome! dave

Hey all, thanks for the replies...I'm in Grayling, so not too far from T.C. and yes my other post received many replies and has given me a very good reason to hope to be able to visit the island this summer.
