God said, let the earth bring forth the living creatures after its kind, and God said let us make man in our image and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and fowl of the air, and over cattle and every creeping thing.. and God blessed them…be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it… I have given you every herb yielding seed. And every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed…to you it shall be for food and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, every green herb for food…

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
