The Oakland County Genealogical Society library collection is no longer located in the Oakland
County Courthouse building, and is temporarily unavailable.
The Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society (ocphs.org) generously offered us space
in their headquarters at 405 Cesar E Chavez Ave, Pontiac. We hope to be unpacked and back
in business in the near future. In the meantime, OCPHS has a collection of historical materials
of value to anyone researching Oakland County ancestors. Their research collection is housed
in the small building behind the Pine Grove Museum. There is ample parking directly in front of the
building, and it is handicap-accessible.
Their hours of operation are:
Tuesday and Thursday 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Wednesday 11:00 am to 8:00 pm.
Since they are staffed by volunteers, it is always a good idea to call ahead: 248 338-6732.
Please watch this space for updates on the library status.
In the meantime, our online resources are available as always.
*Remember that it's always a great idea to check the resources of the local public library in the area of
of your research. If you aren't local, check the library website. The amount of information available online is increasing exponentially as libraries digitize more and more of their resources. Happy Searching!
