IGS Seeking Digitization Projects
The Indiana Genealogical Society is compiling a list of possible Indiana genealogy projects for digitization and indexing. The Society wants to understand (a) what resources might be out in the state that contain data usable for genealogical researchers, and (b) what has not yet been converted into digital form.
The resources may be in printed, manuscript, or micro forms and may in any size from a few paragraphs or a few dozen names to hundreds or thousands of pages.
IGS prefers to leave the details to researchers and contributors to define and let them be as open as possible. The basic parameter is this: Can the material be used to help genealogists find and extend their knowledge of families and individuals.
What do you know? Be creative, brainstorm, peer into nooks and crannies, open old boxes, check interesting envelopes, ask piercing questions, work with your friends, go far afield, tramp down new pathways, go crazy…Ignore difficulties, permissions, and legalities; assume everything is doable.
No item is too small, no idea is too big—let’s rock Indiana genealogy!!
When submitting an idea, include enough detail about project scope and location
to allow IGS/Others to pursue the project further.
Email your contribution to IGS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
[Or mail your idea to the IGS post office address.]
The Indiana genealogy world will be in your debt. Thanks!
