The Genealogy Collection has developed over time to become one of the largest collections of family history information in the Midwest. The collection includes 40,000 printed items (family histories, indexes to records, how-to books, cemetery transcriptions, family history magazines, and more) as well as microfilmed federal census records, Indiana county records, passenger lists, and military pension information. The collection includes hundreds of CDs with family history information. The emphasis of the collection is on Indiana and bordering states, as well as eastern and southern states.
There are numerous online resources to which the State Library subscribes that are only available within the State Library. These include: Ancestry Library, HeritageQuest, FirstSearch, and New England Ancestors.org.
