Who’s Your Hoosier Ancestor is written by a Hoosier genealogist for Hoosiers and for the descendants of anyone who ever lived in Indiana. Mona Robinson provides methods for locating elusive ancestors, describing what records are available to the Indiana researcher, where they can be found, and how to use them most effectively.
Robinson details the many usual and unusual sources that can be employed in genealogical searches—histories, atlases, directories, maps, and sources found in the home. She offers helpful hints and clues, explains the value of each type of record and the problems associated with using it. Valid sources, documentation, primary and secondary sources, and the many avenues of research are all detailed in this book, written especially for Hoosier ancestor hunters.
