Library Resource Indexes

This indexes are a work in progress and contain the indexing to books found in our library. The intent is to index information found in in the genealogy library of the museum like audited cemetery books, local history books, etc. so that references to places, crime, individuals, businesses, schools, organizations or city and county government can be referenced from  master indexes. The index is not necessarily intended to give you the information you need, but does yield data, and will indicate whether the information can be found and the source, if any in our library.

Referenced businesses, acts of god, schools, churches, crime, places, organizations and items related to government can be found using those exact terms in the last name column. (i.e. search for Business in the last name column.)

Since the indexes were done in Excel spreadsheet and will change reasonably often, I am leaving them in spreadsheet form. Clicking the links will take you to Microsoft’s Excel online spreadsheet reader.  References to the Marion City Cemetery will link you to the Marion City Cemetery search page.
