During October, staff at the Frederick Porter Griffin Center have been diligently celebrating Family History Month.
Didn’t make it in to see us? Don’t worry – you can continue the celebration anytime, any day by visiting the FPG Center for Genealogy and Local History page.
Be sure to check out our newly-updated Master Obituary Index! We’ve added over 100 pages of new entries spanning all years pre-1900 up to 2020, made many clerical corrections, and streamlined the “Unknowns” section at the beginning (so even if you have previously unsuccessfully searched for a person in the Index, be sure to check again)! The improved “Disclaimer, Key, and Tips” at the beginning offers assistance to better navigate the document.
We also recently uploaded new digital content including Heth and Jackson Township Justice Dockets and Group Photos.
Coming Up Soon: Keep an eye out for the next digital collection featuring Posey Township Teacher’s Registers from the early 1900s!
