The Mining Gazette of Houghton-Portage Michigan transcriptions are online
for the years 1869 to 1899. 30 years worth of names.
These papers cover the area in Houghton Co. Michigan and surrounding
counties of Keweenaw, Ontonagon, Baraga, Marquette, Gogebic to name a few.
Family members who moved to other mining areas of the US are also mentioned.
Births, Marriages, Marriage Licenses, Deaths and obits have been included in
these. News containing visits, mining accidents, new businesses have also
been included, plus unclaimed mail and naturalizations.
The year of 1900 starts daily publication and the files are much larger.
June and Dick Ross have been compiling these files since the 70's and have
recently sent a note with the last batch of files that they are retiring
from transcribing the areas files and hope others will take on and continue
transcribing. I was sad to see this but they have done so much work that
they deserve a break and a big THANK YOU from the area researchers.
