[updates] Michigan local histories going online.

I started adding local histories for Michigan to my web site. These are 
all early histories that were originally published in 1880, and have a 
lot of information about the early settlers and residents of the area.

So far I have the folling online:
Allegan County
   Clyde Township
   Lee Township

Barry County
   Hastings Township
   The City of Hastings.

Berrien County
   Chickaming Township
   New Buffalo Township.

Five of these are fairly small, but the one for the City of Hastings is 
big and had to be split into two pages.

Most of these local histories are in two parts, the history that I have 
online and 1 to 5 Biological sketches. I only have the history online 
now; the Biographies will go online later in another part of my web site.

It will be a long time before I have hundreds of histories online like I 
have for New York and Maine but I may get there someday. I also have 
some online for NJ, PA, OH, IL, NH and CT.

While typing these up I saw that a lot of the early people came from New 
York, if that is where your family came from I have over 3,000 
biographies of people from New York online also.
