State Library features many programs

The Indiana State Library in Indianapolis features a variety of historical and genealogical programs every month. This month, the library is presenting the following programs of interest to genealogists:

• From Cradle to Grave Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m., in the History Reference Room. “Church records are important resources that can provide a wealth of information about your ancestors. This program will discuss the many church records and related sources available in the collections of the Indiana State Library. Presented by Diane Sharp, Genealogy Collection Supervisor.”

• So Your Ancestor Was from the City? Aug. 18 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., in the History Reference Room. “Program will discuss several of the unique resources for urban research including guides, directories, maps, municipal records in the Indiana State Library and other venues. Presented by Charles Hill, Genealogy Collection Librarian.”

• Alternatives to Official Death Records Aug. 25 from 5:30-6:30 p.m., in the History Reference Room. “This program will show different types of resources to search when there isn’t an official death record. It covers print, microfilm, and electronic resources with special emphasis on the materials within our collection. Presented by Daina Bohr, Genealogy Collection Librarian.”

Another feature of the library is periodic orientation tours “geared toward genealogists” and conducted each month on certain dates. This is a good way to get acquainted (or re-acquainted) with the genealogy holdings in the library and where they are located.

Upcoming tours for the rest of this year are listed below. Each tour starts at 9:30 a.m. and lasts until 11 a.m. You must register ahead of time for a tour. Pre-register by calling (317) 232-3689. All programs and tours are free and open to the public.

Tours dates:

• Aug. 16

• Sept. 1

• Sept. 13

• Oct. 6

• Oct. 18

• Nov. 3

• Nov. 15

• Hi, It’s been a long time since I have done any Padgett research in Indiana. I have very little on Sullivan County, Ind., and would like more information in that area. Has anyone put together information enough to take this line back to Virginia via Kentucky? William A. Padgett was born about 1833 in Indiana and married Sarah A. Born about 1841 in Virginia. Their children were: Anna B., born 1861 in Indiana; Calvin W., born in 1865; Charles W., born in 1866; George D, born in 1867; Martha, born in 1870; and Henry T. (probably Henry Theophilus), born in 1874. What connections do they have to John Padgett, born in 1841, Martha Padgett, born in 1856, and Jane M. Padgett, born in 1879? I appreciate your help.
