The Roscommon County Genealogical Society has a Research and Education Center.
This building has 4 rooms of genealogy material relating to Roscommon County, MI.
There is also information at the Research and Education Center from other cities, counties, states, and genealogy societies in the United States. Many of the holdings have been submitted by members of the society who research other areas of the world, or through donations, or society purchases.
RCGS volunteers are available to help you. It may be advisable to call ahead if you are traveling a long distance, as the Research Center is managed by volunteers and things do come up occasionally

The Hours are:
