IGS Adds Databases To Members-Only

The Indiana Genealogical Society has added several databases to the Members Only area of its website:

Church Records
--Clergy of Indiana Diocese, Episcopal Church (1838-1888)--a listing of Episcopal clergy as found in an annual journal.

College Records
--Faculty of Muncie Normal Institute, Muncie (1915)--a listing of teachers as found in a school yearbook. This database includes photos of the teachers. Muncie Normal Institute later became Ball State University.

County Records
--Directory of Businesses in Orange County, Indiana (1868)
--Directory of Businesses in Ripley County, Indiana (1868)

NOTE: These 2 databases are a listing of business owners for the respective counties, as included in a railroad and shipping directory. They are part of the 2 for 92 Project, where IGS will develop a minimum of two genealogical databases for each of the 92 counties in Indiana and post them to the Members Only area.

Military Records
--Indianapolis Water Company Employees Serving In World War II (1940-1945)--information extracted from issues of an employee newsletter.

These are all premium databases, accessible only to IGS members. The Indiana Genealogical Society now has over 185 databases in the Members Only area of its website. More databases will be added over time.
