252. Search Several Indy Histories At Once

    When we think of the WPA indexes of the 1930's, most of us focus on the county BMD books in their red covers. In fact, the WPA did other kinds of indexes and compilations in addition to those. One of the other kinds is a combined index they did of 32 Indianapolis and Indiana history books in existence at that time.
     This index is in the collection of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library, the Indiana State Library, and a few other sites. You can search by surname, among other things. Don't overlook this great resource.
