Rick Crume has posted his Top 75 State Websites of 2012. Two Indiana sites made his list. Mr. Crume says, "Tracking down state-level genealogy records - births, marriages, deaths and more - can be exhausting work, but each year it gets easier and easier as more state historical societies and archives digitize collections and post them online for you to browse or search."
The Indiana State Digital Archives www.indianadigitalarchives.org - Thanks to the work of volunteers, this site now boasts more than 2.8 million searchable records, including military, naturalization and prison records. Naturalization records from other counties are on the way.
Indiana State Library: Genealogy Collection www.in.gov/library/genealogy.htm - Click on Databases to search indexes to marriages, deaths, biographies and newspapers. The VINE database has Indiana local history and vital records from libraries, historical societies and genealogical societies.
