Michigan -- Social life and customs
Found in 33 Collections and/or Records:
The collection consists of Amos Franklin's diary (January 1 to December 31, 1865). He lived in Michigan and was probably a carpenter. His diary entries are fairly brief and primarily discuss his daily activities and his jobs.
This collection contains four account books listing expenses for a family living in Flint, Michigan, and later Toledo, Ohio, in the years 1908-1922. The books are very detailed and list expenses for food, clothing, rent, travel, entertainment, and household furnishings.
The publication presents a brief history of Charlotte, Michigan in 1907. Included are a survey of the businesses in the village with a photograph of each, biographical sketches of business, civic, and religious leaders of the community. The many photographs in the booklet are invaluable to researchers interested in turn-of-the-century lifestyles.
The collection contains photocopies of newspaper clippings (1924, circa 1926) concerning the establishment of Michigan's Rural free Delivery Service in Climax, Michigan in 1896. Also a photocopy of the book entitled Early Days in Climax (undated) describing school, teachers, town buildings, inventor Hiram Moore, and containing reminiscences of life in Climax in the mid- to late-1800s.
