The Indiana History and Genealogy Database

The Marion Public Library’s Indiana Room staff and volunteers have created the Indiana History and Genealogy Database for your use. Currently the database includes over 800,000 records, more records are added daily, so check back often. If you are unable to find the information you are looking for, please contact the Indiana Room for assistance.

To use the database: Click on search the database and look for your names. You can limit by the type of record if you wish. The database does not Soundex, so you will have to search alternate spellings. Each field must match exactly so try broad searches, using only the last name unless you have a very common surname.

If you’re having problems, we apologize and beg your patience: The database is getting a needed update. The result will be a faster, more effective database.
