[For our southern Indiana contingent!]

            Dennis J. Latta, historian for Knox County, Indiana, will present “How We Changed the Frontier and How the Frontier Changed Us” at the April 7 program of the Southern Indiana Genealogical Society. Mr. Latta will address the changing concept of the frontier, beginning with Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607 through the 19th century. He will discuss frontier living, hospitality, legends and superstitions.
