I’ve been a member for 1 year now after having my 3rd-great-GF proven as an Indiana pioneer (having resided in Henry County before 31 Dec 1840). With the state’s bicentennial nearing in 2016, I felt the need to be more active somehow.
An opportunity has presented itself!
I will be volunteering (manning the SIP table for an hour) at an upcoming genealogy fair in Indianapolis. The Saturday following that is the annual meeting of the SIP, which I also plan to attend.
If you have an ancestor who was in Indiana in the early 19th century, check out their website. The date of residency is different for different counties, and you can find that info on the website. If you don’t have an Indiana pioneer ancestor but are enamored by Hoosier history, you may also join under an associate membership.
