Family History Month, Week 2!

I wanted to add that some databases on IN Genealogical Society website are free to search, for some you must be a member (there is a great number of free Henry County record databases there!).  Also, searching Heritage Quest for census records from home using your NCHCPL card is *free*!  Heritage Quest also has Revolutionary War pension records digitized, as well as books.  Finally, when using Google to do genealogy research, by name I meant the name you are researching.  For example, if I wanted to see if my 3rd-great-grandfather, Aaron Ballard, was mentioned in the area of Logan County, KY, in the 1820s, in Google’s search bar I would enter: Aaron Ballard “logan county kentucky” genealogy.  Using quotes around a term tells Google to search for that term with all the words in that specific order.  Since names of people, especially in genealogy, can be spelled any number of ways, I usually don’t put names in quotes.
