135. New Indy Yearbook Collection Online

     I was pleased to open the recent free online newsletter from the Indiana Genealogical Society and to discover the below new Indianapolis resource.  (Thanks, IGS)
     The Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library is becoming a major player for internet genealogy resources. Now if some entity would only buy the State Library or the State Archives a nice scanner!
