ihs026In my recent article, Indiana Source Book Vol. 1; Genealogical Material From “the Hoosier Genealogist” 1961-1966, I introduced this four volume series on historical Indiana records of genealogical value.. The editor, Willard Heiss, extracted in full the previously collected abstracts as printed in The Hoosier Genealogist, a journal of the Indiana Historical Society.

This volume takes from the years 1967 to 1972, having the full title, Indiana Source Book Vol. 2; Genealogical Material From “the Hoosier Genealogist” 1967-1972. Heiss had this to say about this second volume:

“Dorothy Ricker was the editor [of The Hoosier Genealogist] during this period. It will be noted that the quality and quantity of material is much improved. Dorothy did much of the transcribing and copying of the various records.”

Most of the records covered in this volume cover the early to mid 1800s. Read the following contents list to get a good idea of the records available herein:
