Welcome Members and Guests!

Ahoy, Members!

We greet you with both a heavy heart and a bright outlook for the future. The 2020-2021 Board of Directors have voted to discontinue The Packet. The Packet has been a staple of our Society for 44 years and we feel by placing the entire catalogue of The Packet on our website we are preserving the old and moving forward with the new.

Moving forward, we will be placing all articles, indexes, and original documents directly here on our website. So, plan on checking in often for the newest uploaded information and data. We hope that you will find it easy to navigate as we reorganize and upload. There will be more information available to the public and the Members Only section. We are looking forward to this new era in our Society and hope that many of our members will help make this endeavor successful by contributing items from the Tri-State area for the website.

Our partnership in programming with Willard Library continues with a limited-access in-person monthly program. These programs will also be live-streaming and recorded for viewing on our Tri State Genealogical Society YouTube Channel. Since Willard Library is only allowing 30 people in the Browning Gallery meeting room for our in-person meetings, all reservations must be made on the Willard Library website through their events page only (willard.lib.in.us/events). If you have any questions about reservations, call Willard Library’s Special Collections Department at 812-425-4309. This will be the process until COVID-19 restrictions are resolved.

As always, we thank you for attending and supporting the Tri-State Genealogical Society. I look forward to serving the TSGS during this new and exciting year.
