Society Showcase - Indiana Genealogical Society
The Indiana Genealogical Society will be one of the many FGS member societies with a booth in the Society Showcase in the FGS 2013 Exhibit Hall. Find out more about the Society Showcase at https://www.fgsconference.org/exhibits/society-showcase/.
The Indiana Genealogical Society will be celebrating its 25th anniversary next year. Formed in 1989 in Fort Wayne, in 2013 we have become an almost virtual society, with electronic delivery of our publications and membership that spans the country. We are involved in a partner project with FamilySearch to create a statewide marriage index that goes up to 1959, and we are also leading an effort to preserve and digitize some of Indiana’s probate records – a record group that is rich with details for genealogists and historians. We also send out an e-mail alert, “Indiana News,” each month that is filled with news items and research tips. You can browse past issues of the e-mail alert going back to 2010.
Benefits to membership in the Indiana Genealogical Society include access to our Members-Only area, which features an ever-growing collection of databases about Indiana. We have over 1,000 databases, including at least 4 databases about each of the 92 counties in Indiana. Members also receive a $10 discount on registration to our annual conference, which will be held on at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, headlined by J. Mark Lowe.
At the society showcase booth we will have a special offer – purchase a new membership for $20 (more than 30% off of the regular price), and it will not expire until December 2014. To redeem this offer, pick up our special offer flyer and send payment within 7 days of the conference.
FGS conference attendees can also enjoy a special luncheon on with Curt Witcher, where he’ll be talking about the future of the Indiana Genealogical Society.
