IGS Adds African-American Databases To Members-Only

The Indiana Genealogical Society has added more databases to the African-American Records section of Members Only:

Gibson County
--African-Americans in Civilian Conservation Corps, Princeton, Gibson County, Indiana (1938)

Marion County
--African-Americans in Civilian Conservation Corps, Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indianapolis (1938)

Posey County
--African-Americans in Civilian Conservation Corps, Wadesville, Posey County, Indiana (1938)

NOTE: The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a New Deal employment program operating from 1933 to 1942. The United States and Indiana had numerous CCC companies, all of which were racially segregated.

These are premium databases, accessible only to IGS members.

The Indiana Genealogical Society now has 667 databases in the Members Only area. They cover all 92 Indiana counties and encompass 500,000 records.
