Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS (August 27, 2012) – Grant County recently became the 37th Indiana county to have its naturalization records added to and made available through the Indiana Digital Archives. 13 naturalization books containing 2,060 entries and spanning the era from 1855 to 1960 were indexed as a part of this project. There are records for many “War Brides” and numbers of refugees from the post-World War II era.

“Adding the index of Grant County’s Naturalization records makes a significant contribution to the Indiana Digital Archives,” said State Archivist Jim Corridan. “Grant County has been an important part of the Hoosier story, and the State Archives is pleased to share their records with current and future generations of Hoosiers and the world.”

These records were indexed by Stephanie P. Ledbetter and Ann L. Skene. The index was edited by Mary Etta Boren and Dale Armstrong.

Researchers can view many Indiana county naturalization databases along with indices to many other popular Indiana State Archives collections at The naturalization databases provide great insight into Hoosier immigration at the county level. Friends of the Indiana State Archives volunteers have been hard at work for nearly two decades creating indices for many of the state's records. From before statehood in 1816 and on through to its approaching bicentennial, Indiana has been home to thousands of settlers and immigrants. The Digital Archives enables Hoosiers and citizens worldwide to view the vast collection of historical and vital records housed at the State Archives.
