Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Genealogy, once the hobby of maiden aunts, social climbers, and ancestry snobs, is now the third most popular hobby in the United States, topped only by stamp and coin collecting. The purpose of this book is to present the means and methods for locating elusive ancestors who once lived in Indiana. The book is arranged by resource groups rather than by a chronological history of the state in order to make information about certain records clearer and easier to find and use.

About the Author

MONA ROBINSON, genealogical columnist for the Bloomington Herald-Times, grew up in a household steeped in history, with family stretching back to the Revolutionary War and beyond. The dual impetus of her father’s untimely death and her eldest son’s fifth grade "family tree" project aimed her toward genealogical research twenty-five years ago.

Format: Hardcover
Clear and accessible, this Indiana specialist covers so much information that it is useful for both beginners and old hands. No internet here, but quite a few resources with addresses. (Many are now on the net, so you may be able to avoid some of the agony of putting pen to paper.) Very comprehensive, but in only 217 pages (including notes, bibliography, suggested readings, index, and a few black and whites), some topics are only touched on. You can always supplement with such specialized books as the <Abstracts of the Records of the Society of Friends in Indiana> by the Indiana Historical Society. Chapters include history, the land, natives, boundaries, emigrant trails, who the emigrants were, military, church and cemetery, census, county histories, and more, including basic research principles. There's an excellent gallup through county records, which almost painlessly explains many abstruse goodies such as deed records, antenuptial contracts, ministers' returns, etc. There's also information about what is and is not available or useful, and why.

I was researching my ancestry online, and found this book to be a very interesting and useful companion. As I found ancestors, I used this book to learn a little bit more about what life was like where they lived during their lifetime. I now have a list of options to research that is specific to Indiana. I think it would have taken me a great deal more time to do this research online had I not had the guidance of "Who's Your Hoosier Ancestor?"
