Genealogy by the States – Week 43 – Idaho

Posted by on Sunday, 27 October, 2013

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Idaho. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Idaho. If you don’t have any connections to Idaho, find a Idaho resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 10/27/2013 – 11/22/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.


I have yet to find family ties to Idaho, so I will highlight a genealogy resource instead. The Idaho Historical Society and State Archives has created a number of searchable indexes on it’s website.

These indexes are:

  • Civil War
  • 1890 Census Substitute
  • Naturalization
  • 1870 & 1880 Census
  • Idaho Biographical Index
  • Mother’s Pension Records
  • Old Age Pension Records
  • Innmate Catalog

If you have Idaho ancestors be sure to check out this great resource.
