Benton County, Indiana


Benton County, Indiana resources needed!

If you own any Benton County resources or references, please let me know. As you can see, the bibliography is FAR from complete. Feel free to contact the owners for more information on the resources below.  Owners may be able to provide you with information on the author and publisher and on how to buy your own copy of these materials and MAY be willing to do a BRIEF check of the resources so you can tell if the resource relates to your research interests. They are NOT offering to do large amounts of research.

Please put BENTON COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your e-mail to insure the message is not overlooked or accidently deleted.  In the first line of the message please put the name of the book for which you are requesting information.

The following books and resources are owned by the person linked here. If you own any Benton County books and will do look-ups, please let me know. Please consider being a lookup volunteer.   As you can see, volunteers are needed. If you or your group have a Benton County reference resource for sale, I will be happy to link to your ad or provide the information here.

Please understand that the lookup volunteer WILL NOT do extensive research. The intent of this project is not to provide you with photocopies or scanned images, but to answer simple questions pertaining to the contents of the particular book or reference material.
