Indiana State Archives Adds Spanish War Veterans Database

The Indiana State Archives has added an online database about Indiana's Spanish-American War veterans. The United Spanish War Veterans Membership Files database includes over 6,470 entries for members of the Indiana Department of the United Spanish War Veterans (USWV). The membership files contain applications, membership information, pension correspondence, and death notices. Information on spouses and widows can also be found within many files.

For more information about the database, you can read the press release by the Indiana State Archives.

  1. I happened to organize this record group as an Archives volunteer a couple of years ago. The application form and the TAPS form are great candidates for image scanning. I wonder why a volunteer had to laboriously key in the data instead. When is the Indiana Digital Archives ever going to get any images online?
