IGS Adds African-American Database For Monroe County

The Indiana Genealogical Society has added another database to the Members Only area of its website:

African-American Records
--African-American Veterans in Monroe County, Indiana (1890)

This database was extracted from the 1890 soldiers enrollment list for Monroe County. The soldiers enrollment lists enumerated the veterans of all past wars (including the Civil War) who were living in that county in 1890. If the veteran was deceased, the list included information on their widows and children.

It is a premium database, accessible only to IGS members.

The Indiana Genealogical Society has 306 databases in the Members Only area, covering 68 Indiana counties. More databases will be added over time.
