The Indianapolis genealogy community lost a longtime genealogist and strong supporter with the death on October 10th of Dr. Robert A. McDougal. Bob's obituary is in today's Sunday Star and illustrates his activism in many areas.
Bob was a longtime member of the Genealogical Society of Marion County, as well as the Mayflower Society, the Palatines, the Huguenot Society, and was a former SAR member. He strongly supported the Indiana Medical History Museum here in Indianapolis, and donations may be made to that facility in his name.
Our sympathies go out to Bob's wife Lee and his family. He will be missed by more than just the genealogical community.
