Macomb County, Michigan is an interesting county. To whit, there had been four cities in Macomb county who maintained their own vital records, instead of the county clerk. Those four cities are: Eastpointe, Saint Clair Shores, Sterling Heights and Warren. Now wouldn’t you know those just happen to be the major cities of the ELIASZ clan in Michigan. This jester just assumed that Macomb county had those duties. No wonder genealogy is hard, the exceptions get you.
Now this came to light recently when in November (2015), Eastpointe decided to turn over its birth, death record keeping to Macomb County. Eastpointe turned over to the county 90 years worth of vital records. The records date back to 1925 when Eastpointe was known as Halfway (I did not know that), in 1929 it became East Detroit, and finally in 1992 it became Eastpointe. So if you were missing data from Halfway/East Detroit/Eastpointe now you may be able to find them at the county clerk’s office in Mt Clemens. For those whose data is in St. Clair Shores, Sterling Heights or Warren, now you know the data if its not in the county clerk’s office is in those cities’ municipal buildings.

I read something said by the 6’7″ Quarterback from New Mexico and UM commitment (flipped from Texas), Zach Gentry who was so psyched when he received a very special phone call.
“When Harbaugh is calling, you’re excited”, was what the QB Gentry said that is going around sports writers laptops these days.
So Stanczyk, immediately thought, “There’s a meme here!” SO … what I want my friends to do is when you end an email or a Facebook or Twitter or even a blog post, write … ‘Gotta Go #JimHarbaughCalling’ — even if you are writing/emailing President Obama!!!

Stanczyk, was overjoyed at the announcement of the newest FamilySearch.org database:
Michigan, Death Certificates, 1921-1952
The URL / Link is: https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1968532 [bookmark it]
They just published it 29 April 2013 [after some issues were discussed]. No your eyes are not playing tricks, the FamilySearch.org website has had a makeover recently. It may be a unsettling if you have not visited the site in a while, but persevere, it is worth it.
Hurry and grab your dead relatives in case any controversy causes this database to disappear!
