Meaning of "from"[edit]

What does 'from' mean? I would take it to mean 'born in' which Gerald Ford wasn't. Can we be specific? DJ Clayworth 14:22, 15 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't know. It seems if Michigan is their current residence, or maybe if it greatly influenced their life and/or was what made them/where they got famous. Though by that logic, Hemingway deserves some mention, as he spent nearly every summer of his childhood in the state. - IstvanWolf 03:02, 16 May 2006 (UTC)


I think it means people who have lived here.66.82.9.87 (talk) 23:32, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Split up article[edit]

This article is over 120K long, and can slow many people's computers down. I tried to disambiguate a link on the page and it took a while to do, even though I only edited a section. I am just suggesting this, because I am sure that there are people out there that will be able to do something with this page. --Willy No1lakersfan (Talk - Contribs) 03:21, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Agree, so I've just moved the actors into List of Michigan actors, the sports figures into List of Michigan sports figures, and the writers into List of Michigan writers. Other sections can be split off, too, but this is a start. Rosiestep (talk) 05:20, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
