WELCOME HOME  -  Berrien County is a county of diversity with so much to offer. St. Joseph River flows into  Lake Michigan and with St. Joseph as a port, affords safety to those coming by water. Other portions of Berrien, offer vineyards. vegetable and fruit crops that have that special "Michigan" flavor. The resort areas allow escape from busy city life and speckle the shores and county.
It is not hard to understand why our ancestors were drawn to this beautiful area.

Berrien County, MIGenWeb is proud to be a part of the oldest Internet genealogical research group, "The USGenWeb". Berrien was named for the Honorable John M. Berrien, Attorney General under the direction of President Andrew Jackson.  County organized - 1831. Original county seat - Berrien Springs until 1894 when Saint Joseph became the county seat.  

History and Growth of the MIGenWeb Project   -  In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project, now known as the Kentucky GenWeb Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. The MIGenWeb Project is an outgrowth of that original Kentucky project for the state of Michigan and also began in 1996.

The Berrien County MI GenWeb Project Disclaimer: The Berrien County MI GenWeb Project makes no claims or estimates of the validity of the information submitted and reminds you that each new piece of information found should not be taken at face value, but should be researched and proved or disproved by weight of evidence. You are welcome to copy information found at the Berrien County MI GenWeb for personal use and share information with other researchers or genealogical organizations, but this information may not under any conditions be sold or used in a commercial project without expressed prior written permission.
