Brighton area
Livingston County, michigan

Sadly, time has not permitted me to get very involved with this vibrant group that covers the Eastern lower half of Livingston County. The group was founded in 1981 and its purpose is "To Preserve, Advance, and Disseminate Knowledge of the History of the Brighton (Livingston County, Michigan) Area" 

Their banner which proudly appears on all of their newsletters alerts one to the fact that there is sure to be good reading in the current issue that has just been delivered. With departments ranging from history to school restorations, and a vibrant membership I am sure you can find a niche if you are interested in the history of this area. After all, what is family history without the stories of the area in which that family grew and prospered?

The society has I think several items that can be ordered via this format and as soon as I am made aware of their titles and prices I will add this data and they can then be ordered.  I know they have several decorative tiles and prints and even a tote bag if I am not wrong, so will load as soon as I know. All items are postpaid and you can include your check or money order made out to the society and if you are interested can even include your dues if you wish to join the society and receive the newsletter or better yet get involved with this dynamic group. If you are including funds for any of the memberships, please make sure you name & address are included with your phone and a short statement about how you might be able to help the society with your interests and their projects/activities combined. Also please state if this is a new membership or a renewal. You can print out the form below and fill in your needs and sending it to the society at:
