IGS Wins Technology Award

The Indiana Genealogical Society is pleased to announce that it was awarded the Outstanding Society Technology Award from the Federation of Genealogical Societies.

The award recognizes "a tech-savvy FGS member society for its website, online presence, social networking, blog, or specific technology related project that provides examples and ideas from which other societies can benefit."

IGS received this award for its Indiana Genealogy Digitization Project, which helps Indiana non-profits digitize local records. In turn, these records are also made available for free on the IGS website.

You can find the free databases provided through this project on the IGS website. (Most are in the "County Records" section.)

If your organization has records that would be of benefit to Indiana genealogists, please review the Indiana Genealogy Digitization Project page to see how you can apply for a laptop, scanner, and other equipment.
