IGS Adds Bartholomew County Civil War Diary As Free Database

The Indiana Genealogical Society has added a diary of a Bartholomew County soldier in the Civil War to the Military Records section of our Members Only area:

--Diary of Robert B. Craig, Company G, 33rd Indiana Infantry (1864)

This is a transcription of a diary written in 1864 by Robert B. Craig of Bartholomew County, who served in Company G of the 33rd Indiana Infantry during the Civil War. Some of the pages were also scanned and included alongside the transcription.

This database is free to the public - no membership is necessary in order to view it. It was donated by Marilyn Clark, who was able to return the diary to descendants of Robert Craig's family.

The Indiana Genealogical Society now has 1,261 databases in the Members Only area. Each of Indiana's 92 counties has at least 5 databases.
