IGS Records Preservation Project Update

The Indiana Genealogical Society's Records Preservation Project continues to make progress. The project, which is preserving and digitizing Hendricks County probate records, has unfolded and organized about 20% of the records for 1824 through 1900.

IGS recently moved its work area from the Hendricks County Government Center to the Danville Town Hall. IGS thanks Danville Clerk-Treasurer Amy Roberts for the generous loan of the work area and storage space, which will allow the project to continue. Volunteers help unfold and organize the records on weekdays--if you would like to help, please contact volunteer coordinator Meredith Thompson--e-mail

Work is also continuing on the digitizing of the records. Volunteers are needed to edit the digital files using software such as Adobe Photoshop Elements--if you would like to help, please contact project coordinator Shirley Richison Fields—e-mail

And a big THANK YOU to our newest donors:
John Cashman—Coal City, IN
Ron Darrah—Indianapolis, IN
Barbara Krehbiel—Charleston, IL
Phyllis Parsons—Clayton, IN
