Genealogy by the States – Week 19 – Indiana

Sunday, May 12, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Indiana. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Indiana. If you don’t have any connections to Indiana, find a Indiana resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 5/12/2013 – 5/18/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

As the Genealogy by the States series moves out to the Midwest and beyond, there’s going to be an increasing number of states where I do not have a direct connection to the state or that connection is rather remote. This week’s state of Indiana is one of those states where I do not have any connection at all. Therefore, this week I’m highlighting a Indiana resource I found.

The Indiana State Digital Archives is a great resource for those of you with ancestors in Indiana.

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

Can you help identify these two men? Do you have any comments about the photo?

Approximate Date of Picture: Unknown. Although this is a tin type photo, the suits and tie to me appear to be well after 1900, perhaps 1910-1916.

Description of Picture: Two young men sitting down. The water scene behind them is obviously a studio prop.

Size of Picture: 2.5” * 4”

Type of Picture: Tin Type

Dates the Studio was in business: Unknown
