Recommended repository for 1820 Michigan Territory land-designation proclamation?

Hi folks, 

If you're willing to offer a recommended repository for a Michgian-related inquiry, I sure would appreciate any guidance you may be able to offer.

What I am in search of, is an original proclamation that was signed by the acting governor of Michigan Territory in Detroit on 28 JUNE 1820.  The document establishes Bloomfield Township in Oakland County as a legal entity.  A transcription of the original is in the stacks at NARA in RG 59.4.3.

We’re interested in topics that explore the many tight intersections between, or loose boundaries around, childhood, youth, and popular culture.
