Genealogy Collection

The Genealogy Collection has developed over time to become one of the largest collections of family history information in the Midwest. The collection includes more than 40,000 print items (family histories, indexes to records, how-to-books, cemetery transcriptions, family history magazines, and more), as well as military pension information. The emphasis of the collection is on Indiana and bordering states, as well as eastern and southern states. Patrons can schedule Second Saturday One-on-One Family History Consultations. Groups can arrange for tours or visits to the Indiana State Library's Genealogy Collection, as well. On Wednesday afternoons as well as the second Saturday of each month, volunteers from the Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution are available to assist patrons who are researching their lineage.
