IGS Adds Databases To Members-Only

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

African-American Records
--Indiana's African-American Soldiers in the Civil War (1861-1865)--a listing of over 2,500 African-Americans from Indiana who served in various regiments across the country. This listing was compiled from Indiana's Adjutant General report (8 volumes), which was published in 1869.

College Records
--Faculty of Earlham College, Richmond (1859)--a listing of teachers, as found in a school catalog.
--Faculty of Taylor University, Upland (1901)--a listing of teachers, as found in a school yearbook. This database includes photos of the teachers.

County Records
--Directory of Businesses in Decatur County, Indiana (1868)
--Directory of Businesses in Scott 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.

These are all premium databases, accessible only to IGS members. The Indiana Genealogical Society has now posted 200 databases to the Members Only area of its website. More databases will be added over time.
