The program will focus on the following:

    Introduction

    How to Access

    Examples of a variety of genealogical records online

 

Donna K. Adams  is Head of the Genealogy/Local History Department at the Sullivan County Public Library.  She serves as Sullivan County Genealogist & Historian and has been a genealogist for more than 30 years.  Donna has assisted WVGS in the Beginning Genealogy Classes and initiated the creation of many searchable databases for the SCPL. In partnering with ISU, grant funding was obtained to digitize court and other related records to place on Wabash Valley Visions & Voices.

 Vikki Sordean is one of our WVGS charter members and has been doing research since 1978.  She is also a member of DAR and has done research in Salt Lake City, Library of  Congress, DAR Library, Archives in Washington, DC, and the Library of Virginia in Richmond. The kind of research she enjoys most is searching those old court house records.

The Historic Preservation Committee members of WVGS, under Vikki's direction,  have been working the last 5 years scanning Vigo County records and digitizing them for Visions and Voices.  To date there are nearly 20,000 images online.
