About IGS

Formed in 1989, the Indiana Genealogical Society strives to help preserve and publish materials relating to the people who settled the state. IGS has been at the forefront of efforts to make Indiana’s historical records more accessible to the public by indexing and digitizing records. IGS has more than 500,000 records on its website, representing all 92 of Indiana’s counties.

Our current projects include a Records Preservation Project in Hendricks County, where we are preserving and digitizing Hendricks County probate records that date back to the county’s founding in the early 1800’s.

Members of the Indiana Genealogical Society receive access to our growing collection of databases. We currently have over 2000 databases, representing all 92 Indiana counties. We add new databases every month.

Members of the Indiana Genealogical Society also receive electronic delivery of our publications, IGS Newsletter and Indiana Genealogist. IGS Newsletter contains news items from across the state. Indiana Genealogist contains record abstracts and helpful articles relating to Indiana genealogy research.
