Due to lack of space all of the Wayland area genealogy and historical items can be found at the Then and Now Genealogical and Historical Society of Allegan County. Then and Now can be found at 1807 142nd Ave, Dorr, MI. They can be reached by phone/fax at 616-681-0333. Their open hours are Wednesdays from 1:00 to 5:00 and Saturdays from 10:00 to 3:00, or by appointment: call Linda Stoepker at 616-896-9744.

Also, library patrons have access to Heritage Quest Online via the MeL database. Click on the previous link, or Click on the “find” button in the MeL icon on the left and then on MeL Databases. Then scroll down the page until you get to Heritage Quest (alphabetically listed). This database can be accessed at the library or from home. You may be required to enter your library card number or driver’s license number in order to enter the datebase. If you have any trouble just give the library a call and we can walk you through it.
