Genealogy Resources from the Peabody Public Library

Ancestry.com, the nation’s most popular genealogical resource, with hints from all over the country to aid in your research, is now available inside the library.

 

HeritageQuest online is a collection of material for both genealogical and historical researchers, with coverage dating back to the late 1700s. HeritageQuest online is accessible both inside the library and outside the library. (To access HeritageQuest from a remote location, you will need a valid library card number to enter when prompted for a barcode.)

 

Indiana Memory is made possible through the collaborative efforts of academic libraries, public libraries, historical societies, museums, and archives to create and share their digital collections reflecting Indiana’s cultural heritage–an Indiana “Virtual Museum”. Peabody Public Library and the Whitley County Historical Museum have teamed up to create a site on Indiana Memory. Our collection is named Historical Whitley County and holds pictures of the county, the library, Mr. Peabody and some of the artwork in the library.

 

Our online Obituary Database contains obituary records from local newspapers, 1856 – 1910 and 1983 – present. This online index is accessible anywhere, but newspapers are kept in the Whitley County portion of our Indiana Room on microfilm.
