New Databases: Orange County and Phi Beta Psi

The Indiana Genealogical Society is happy to announce the first databases created as part of our Indiana Genealogy Digitization Project. The Paoli Public Library has digitized these materials which are in their collection. They are now available for free on the IGS website.

Orange County:

- Directory of Lynn Public School, Stampers Creek Township, Orange County, Indiana (1923)
Digital images of a 1923 souvenir for Lynn Public School District #1, listing the students and school officials. Stampers Creek Township is in the eastern part of Orange County, east of Paoli.

Statewide Records:

- Members of Phi Beta Psi Sorority in Indiana (1933)
Digital images of a 1933 directory for the Phi Beta Psi sorority. This service-oriented sorority was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1904. In 1933, it had 17 chapters in Indiana: Arcadia, Anderson, Aurora, Batesville, Columbus, Corydon, Fairmount, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, Lawrenceburg, Orleans, Paoli, Scottsburg, South Bend, Terre Haute, and Tipton. This directory includes group photos of each chapter and information about the births, marriages, and deaths of its members.

Does your organization have Indiana genealogy materials that need digitizing? Maybe IGS can help you, too, through the Indiana Genealogy Digitization Project. See the website for more details.
