"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are
and where we have
come from.  Without this enriching knowledge there is a hollow yearning. 
No matter what our 
attainments in life there is still a vacuum.  An emptiness,
and the most disquieting loneliness." 
Alex Haley





WELCOME TO THE BENTON COUNTY INGENWEB PROJECT

     Benton County INGenWeb is a part of the USGenWeb Project and is an all-volunteer effort.  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. 
     My name is Adina Watkins Dyer and I am responsible for Benton County.  This site was previously cared for by Anthony Gick.  I would like to thank Anthony for all his years of dedication and work for the researchers of Benton County, and wish him all the best for the future.
     If you would like to contribute information to this site, please let me know.
