LANSING -- A key portion of Michigan's archives is on the move.
The Michigan departments of education and of natural resources have agreed to move selected family heritage collections to the reading room of the Archives of Michigan.
They had been housed in the Library of Michigan. State Librarian Nancy Robertson said library and archives materials will remain available to researchers.
The move is expected to continue the state's stewardship of the collection and better align resources of both groups. It is to take place with a rededication planned during the Abrams Genealogy Seminar on July 13.
It completes the realignment of services necessitated by budget and staff cuts.
