Indiana Genealogy

Genealogy is a popular hobby these days. As people age, they acquire a yearning to know who came before them. Have you ever considered searching for your roots but felt daunted by the entire process? The Indiana State Library offers a myriad of resources chock full of genealogical information, one of which is entitled "Getting Started" (http://www.statelib.lib.in.us/www/isl/indiana/genealogy/gennet/getstart.htm). This breaks down the process into manageable steps, guaranteed to pacify even the most intimidated.

After you've decided to search for your family's history, the next step is to visit the Library. The Genealogy Division offers a Family History Orientation Tour twice a month. This tour will acquaint you with valuable resources such as county records, census microfilm, family histories, Indiana newspapers, and more. This is your opportunity to discover where the materials are located in the Library so you can begin your research. Tour dates for 2006 have already been scheduled and are listed at the following Web address: http://www.statelib.lib.in.us/www/isl/whatwedo/events.html. To register for a free tour, please call (317) 232-3689.
