Indiana’s Genealogy Collection Ranks Nationally

Spring is a time of renewal.  A great way to nurture your own family tree is to spring into your own genealogy research.  Family Tree Magazine has reviewed genealogy websites for over thirteen years.  Their lineup for websites includes free and paid websites.

Family Tree Magazine has recognized the accomplishments of the Indiana State Library.  The genealogy collection of Indiana has matured to be one of the most comprehensive collections in the Midwest.  With over 40,000 printed items, families can sift through family histories, indexes to records, how-to books, and cemetery transcriptions.

In addition, the collection includes microfilmed federal census records, Indiana 32 county records, passenger lists, and military pension information.  According to the state website, the emphasis on the collection is on Indiana and bordering states, as well as eastern and southern states.

The State Library also subscribed to some additional resources that can enhance the genealogy research.  However, these resources are only available within the State Library.  The subscriptions include:  Ancestry Library, HeritageQuest, FirstSearch, and New England

Researchers interested in a genealogy research can visit the Indiana State Library or they can write, call, or e-mail their questions.  The Genealogy Collection website:
