GENEALOGY: Take advantage of libraries for research; some resources can be found nowhere else

TERRE HAUTE — Visiting libraries in person to conduct family history research can be very rewarding in several ways. First, searchers get to visit the community where the ancestor may have lived. Second, many local libraries have resources and archives that can be found nowhere else but at that repository. So the possibility of real discovery exists. Third, patrons meet experts in the field of local history — librarians who can answer your questions and point searchers in new directions. Below is a list of local libraries in Indiana worth visiting:
