Porter County Genealogy and Family History Researchers:
The website for the Northwest Indiana Genealogical Society (NWIGS), which serves Lake and Porter Counties, has recently been updated. The web address is:http://www.rootsweb.com/~innwigs/
The website contains numerous records that can now be more easily examined with the addition of a search engine. A list of nearly 50 publications available for purchase through NWIGS is also provided online. These publications include cemetery, obituary, church, and school records, among others.
Also of note is the addition of an image library (see: Northwest Indiana Views link). This library currently contains nearly 1,800 described images of Porter County, mostly scanned from picture postcards and promotional brochures published between 1895 and 1911.
