The Wabash Valley Genealogy Society will be offering the educational forum “Cradle to Grave: Church Records in the Indiana State Library” on Aug. 12 in Terre Haute.

The program will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Rooms A, B & C of the Vigo County Public Library. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

Church records are important resources that can provide a wealth of information about our ancestors.  

In this program, Sharp will discuss use of these records and feature materials available in the collections of the Indiana State Library.
