In the Gift Shop: Finding Indiana Ancestors
We have added Finding Indiana Ancestors: A Guide to Historical Research to our gift shop offerings. Edited by M. Teresa Baer and Geneil Breeze and published by the Indiana Historical Society Press, this book is a treasure trove of information, how-tos, resources, and examples to help you navigate the speed bumps and detours along the road of your family history.
The book has six parts: Getting Started, Identifying Resources, Researching Records, Researching With Maps, Researching Ethnic Groups, and Providing Context and Accuracy. It provides an excellent foundation for beginning genealogists, but also contains in-depth resources that even experienced family researchers will find useful.
