Indiana Records on Ancestry

Earlier this month Ancestry added some juicy records for Indiana Researchers. Birth, Marriage, and Death Certificate databases went online. These include: “Indiana, Death Certificates, 1899-2011”; “Indiana, Birth Certificates, 1907-1940”; and “Indiana, Marriage Certificates, 1958-2005.” This is a great feast for anyone researching in the Hoosier State!

I’ve taken my first stab at creating an Evidence Explained compliant footnote for the Death certificates. It may be tweaked as I go, but here is my first go at it:

Indiana State Board of Health, Death Certificate no. 254, Simon Kixmiller, 23 October 1904; consulted as “Indiana, Death Certificates, 1899-2011,” digital images, Ancestry (http://ancestry.com : viewed 17 June 2016); citing Death Certificates, 1900-2011, Indiana State Board of Health, Indiana Archives and Records Administration, Indianapolis.
