> Subject: [MIBRANCH] Coldwater City Directory Info (12)
> A few years ago I did research on my family in the Branch County Public
> Library in Coldwater, Branch Co., Michigan. I found a goldmine of
> information in the Coldwater city directories published from 1909
> through 1925 (some intervening years missing from the library). I
> copied the pages from the directories and when I got home, I typed them,
> put them in a binder, and sent a copy to the library. I also sent a
> copy to the Branch County Genweb site, although I don't see it there any
> more. The site is undergoing some construction so I hope it will
> eventually be put on the site again.
> These directory entries show marriages, anniversaries, deaths, and other
> notable events that happened. Since some of you may never have seen
> this, I have decided to put it on this site. Since it is fairly large,
> I will break it up into several messages. The original document I typed
> was 104 pages.
> I hope some of you will find your ancestors in this information.
