Surname Index of Family Files


  1. Would like to see the files.

    • Have you moved yet? If not, come in and visit! We’re open tomorrow 1-4:30 and Saturday 10-1. 🙂

  2. I found my family’s surname in the file. Since I don’t live in or even near Indiana, how can I learn more about what you have in their name? The surname is Watts.

    • Hi Elizabeth! Email us at with the information you seek (names, dates, places, etc., whatever you know). We’ll let you know what we are able to find and let you know the cost for copies. Thanks for writing! 🙂 Amanda Clark, Board Member and Volunteer

  3. Hi, My name is Marilyn. I have the Ellison and the Morris surname in the index. Do you offer a service for people that can not get to the Historical Society that can do a search?

    • Sent you an email! 🙂
