The Kalamazoo Valley Heritage (also called the The Heritage) is published monthly from September through June (except December). Beginning with Volume 25 (2000-2001) the Heritage included occasional special supplements in addition to regular news and shorter articles of interest to genealogists. These issues have been subject indexed by PERSI as have older issues by the Allen County Public Library.

The Heritage is free to members of the Society and sent free to selected genealogical and historical societies and libraries. It is available in most public libraries in Southwest Michigan.

Short articles, news of genealogical events, books for review or transcriptions of original records from southwestern Michigan are always welcome. Mail your Heritage news and articles to our editor.
