(Submitted from the Paul Brock Collection)

"We remember, search and document, so they are not forgotten"
In June, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single
entry point for all counties in Indiana, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed
and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.
At the same time volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
