You know, though, that the Archives will always be open for family history researchers on Tuesdays and Fridays (except in bad weather events). Now is the time that the kids are back in school to get back on the family history research. So if you want to get out of the house plan on spending a day down here in Brown County, have a nice lunch at one of the local eateries, and bring your family history files. We just love to help you dig into your elusive ancestors.
Recently we have been building up our House History files. That is a growing hobby for many home owners. If you live in an older home, a log cabin, or just want to know the history of your property we can help you get started. If we don't have the history we can show you how to do it yourself!
We have launched a project to get our oldest newspapers photographed and put on the web. With the help of the Indiana State Library, they are at this writing working on this project. We have various old newspapers from 1857 to 1909 that have never been seen by the public. We don't have a launch date yet, but they will be put on the Library's website, Indiana Memory Project at https://digital.library.in.gov/
