An Indiana Bicentennial Project

Allen County Library's "Who's a Hoosier? 

In the latest issue of the Indiana Genealogical Society's Newsletter,  I noted a project in which many of us could participate.
The Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library has a project through December 11, 2016 to collect photos of "old and new images of daily life and the people of Indiana..." Click on this link to see a flyer.
