Stockbridge Area Genealogical/Historical Society

The town of Stockbridge, Ingham County, is located in the central part of Michigan’s lower peninsula. Greater Stockbridge covers a larger geographic area, which includes portions of four counties: Ingham, Livingston, Jackson, and Washtenaw.

The Society has made a number of resources available online. Click on the links in the contents list on the left side of the page to access them. The resources include:

 

Obituaries
The Stockbridge Area Genealogical/Historical Society has been indexing death notices recorded in Stockbridge newspapers. They cover the period from 1886 through 1966 and 1968 through 1999. The years 1956 through 1959 are missing. The alphabetical indexes are organized primarily in ten-year groups. There are only two data fields in each index: last name and first name. Any additional missing issues are noted on the index pages. Copies of death notices may be ordered from the Society for a fee. There is a link to the order form on each index page.

 

Marriages
The marriage index covers the period from 1838 through 1867. The marriages included in this database took place in the counties of Ingham, Livingston, Jackson, and Washtenaw. There are separate indexes for brides and grooms, organized alphabetically by last name. The data fields in both indexes include bride's last name, bride's first name, bride's residence, groom's last name, groom's first name, groom's residence, date of marriage, place of marriage, county, and record number. This index is a work in progress.

 

Military Project
The Society currently has one military record database on its website. It is made up of the World War I veterans identified by the society to date. The records have been organized alphabetically by county. The World War II veterans’ index is under construction.
