Featured Project: Who’s A Hoosier?

Do you live in Indiana? Have you ever resided in Indiana? Do you have family who once made Indiana their home? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you know someone who is a Hoosier.

In celebration of the state’s bicentennial, The Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library (Fort Wayne, Indiana) invites Hoosiers to contribute images of “life lived in the small places” as that is what makes, and has made, Indiana great. We are interested in old and new images of daily life and the people of Indiana that showcase Hoosier life. These can include children at play, people at work, people hanging out, sporting events, homes and buildings, and so much more.

The Genealogy Center will collect “Who’s a Hoosier?” images through December 11, 2016 in honor of Indiana’s 200 years of statehood. We will post these images as we receive them in the library’s “Community Album.” Watch the collection of images grow by clicking on the “Who’s a Hoosier?” link in the “Community Album.”

Show your Hoosier pride – contribute a picture (or two!) along with a description of the images, detailing who and what makes Indiana great!
