At its August board meeting, the Indiana Genealogical Society appointed Audrey Kinezian of Knox, Indiana as the Indiana County Genealogist for Starke County. Audrey is a Chicago native who discovered genealogy while living in New England in the early 1970's. She was able to take advantage of learning from devoted librarians and archivists long before genealogy became the huge hobby that it is today. She became a professional genealogist in 1982 and lived all over the United States before retiring to Starke County in 1997.
Indiana County Genealogist is a program of the Indiana Genealogical Society. Its goal is to appoint qualified individuals to represent each of the 92 counties in Indiana. The ICG is a liaison between the Indiana Genealogical Society and local organizations and individuals, reporting on genealogy-related news (including any issues of records preservation and access).
