Indiana Digital Archives Named to Best of Web List  

The Indiana Digital Archives has been named a 2010 Best State Website by "Family Tree Magazine." America's #1 family history publication released the list of honorees in its December 2010 issue and is available at http://familytreemagazine.com/article/2010-best-state-websites. The list honors America's leading genealogy research websites. The seventy-five sites listed represent the go-to bookmarks for browsing America's past, state by state. The Indiana Digital Archives joined the Allen County Public Library's Genealogy Center as the only two honorees from the State of Indiana. "The State Archives is proud to receive positive feedback and national recognition for a project that has been years in the making and taken thousands of hours of volunteer work," said Jim Corridan, State Archivist and Director of the Indiana Commission on Public Records. "The Digital Archives has been a great success because it instantly connects researchers to Indiana's historical records and other holdings of the Indiana State Archives."   Researchers can browse through the indexes to many of the most popular Indiana State Archives collections through the Indiana Digital Archives. Friends of the Indiana State Archives volunteers have been hard at work for more than fifteen years creating indexes 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 browse the vast collection historical and vital records housed at the State Archives.
