Thanks to generous donations of Marshall County Abstracts from McKesson Title Corp., First Federal Bank, and 1st Source Bank there is a wonderful new resource now available for researchers. Hundreds of Abstracts (which are no longer used as legal documents, but have tremendous family history) were used to create an index at the Marshall County Historical Museum. The names of each owner, date, and a general description of the property (Township and Range) were extracted from each abstract. The Abstract Number (AB#) and page are used by the museum staff to find the particular page within an abstract. Inquiries about the index may be directed to the museum research library by contacting Judy McCollough or Karin Rettinger There have been thousands abstracts prepared since the beginning of Marshall County. They are no longer necessary to transfer or prove land ownership. We are fortunate to have this collection to use as a historical research tool.
