IGS Adds 3 Indiana Soldiers & Sailors Orphans' Home Databases To Members-Only

The Indiana Genealogical Society has added 3 databases about the Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home to the Miscellaneous Records section of our Members Only area:

--Children at Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home, Knightstown, Indiana (1889)
--Children at Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home, Knightstown, Indiana (1890)
--Children at Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home, Knightstown, Indiana (1893)

NOTE: The Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home (later called the Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Children's Home) was founded in 1865 specifically for the children of Civil War veterans, but the eligibility was later expanded to include the children of any veteran.

These are premium databases, accessible only to IGS members.

The Indiana Genealogical Society now has 1,042 databases in the Members Only area. Each of Indiana's 92 counties has at least 4 databases.
