Is anyone familiar with adoption law in the state of Michigan?

I have been told that in Michigan adoption records are sealed. My late grandma was adopted in Detroit MI waaaay back in 1922. She passed away last November. We want to know where she came from but are having a hard time contacting the right people. Since she is gone will they open her record for my grandpa or mom ?

  • To the best of my knowledge only the adoptee can open the records.
