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
- 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.
