Turning Michigan-Canadian Research Upside Down
Through a series of examples, in her article, "Turning Michigan-Canadian Research Upside Down," Judy Rosella Edwards illustrates her thesis that "Immigrants did not always follow a straight and obvious route. Michigan-Canada migrations create an intriguing panorama of people on the move.

The article also shows how an understanding of the early geography can direct or redirect research.
