Welcome to the '''Michigan Wiki''': a [[w:wiki|wiki]] dedicated to the sharing of information about the culture, places and people of this [[Great Lakes State]]. If it is a Michigan topic, we want to cover it&mdash;even the details! We want to share the wonders of Michigan from the tip of the [[Keweenaw Peninsula]] to [[Lambertville]].
   
Ideally, this [[Wikipedia:wiki|wiki]] will be an enhancement of the already terrific [[Wikipedia:Michigan|Michigan]] entries on [http://en.wikipedia.com Wikipedia]. There's thousands of stories to be told about Michigan's inhabitants and hopefully some can be told at '''Michigan Wiki'''.
