2015, it is now the beginning of February and spring is just a little over a
month away. It is time to shed the
winter blahs and get involved breaking down your brick walls or find new
information on your family.
The new TIPCOA
board members met in the middle of January and have planned several
presentations which we think you will enjoy.
We also discussed TIPCOA taking on a new project which will take three
to four meetings over the course of a year to complete. If it is successful we can continue it
further. More information will be
available at the February meeting.
Please think of
which cemetery you would like to tour this August and if you would like to
take a research trip in July and if so, where.
Your input is important and I will be asking you for your thoughts at
House Bill 1001 has been
proposed to cut 24% from the State funding to The Indiana State Library and to
eliminate the Genealogy Department altogether.
State budget director said that the libraries services are the same
that would be offered through Ancestry.com.
Please write, call, or email your state representative to vote against
this bill. If it passes, Indiana
will lose a great asset and all residents and everyone with ties to
Indiana’s past will lose.
The Indiana Genealogical
Society's annual conference will be held on Saturday,

State University (401 N. Seventh St.) in Terre Haute, Indiana. The featured
