Records Preservation Project

PROJECT STATUS

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The Indiana Genealogical Society is coordinating volunteers to unfold and digitize about 4,000 files of Hendricks County probate records that are in the basement of the Hendricks County courthouse in Danville, Indiana. These court records date from 1824 (when the county was founded) through the early 1900's and have never been microfilmed, indexed or otherwise been accessible to the public. Probate records include estate and guardianship cases, as well as some criminal and civil court cases, and as such contain some fascinating details about the lives of early settlers.

When the project is complete, the original papers will be stored in the Plainfield library's climate-controlled archives. Copies of the digital files will be given to the Hendricks County Clerk's office.
