Fountain County INGenWeb Project

Go to content
Welcome, to the newly revised Fountain County Genweb Site.

!!! Something New!!!  To help facilitate moving between sub-sites, I have added what I call the "Get Around Links"  You will find their menu tab, just below the "Home Page ~ Tab" on all Sub-Sites.  These links will make it easier to moved more directly between the sub-sites.  I hope you enjoy them and have FUN, Happy Genealogy Days!!!  On February 20, 2018 I have added 6 more links in "Get Around Links" for Business, Family Receipes, News, Parke County Genweb Site, Vermillion County Genweb Site, Tippecanoe County Genweb Site and Warren County Genweb Site.   I created 3 new projects by moving items out of the Main Project (just getting to big!) Have Fun, Jim

I have tried hard to give the Geneolagists of Fountain County something to be proud of.  If you discover a problem, let Karen know.  Everyday I am learning something new about this procedure. Please be patient, Thanks, Jim!

NOTE: I and many others have spent 20 plus years (from its inception) on this project -- PLEASE GIVE CREDIT if you use our work! I've found hundreds of obituaries FROM THIS SITE on findagrave and many personal genealogy sites - I know the obituaries etc. came from here but I don't see any credit. PLEASE GIVE CREDIT!!!! Here is the citation you should use & thanks so much in advance :)

Feel free to use the site search engine, the nice people at FreeFind have graciously indexed our website for free for several years now, and it indexes about 85% of all words- (some it skips because they may be common, or the engine runs out of time to index us.)

---- NOTICE ---

This site is dependent upon transcribing efforts by a corps of volunteers. No one person can possibly "know it all" including the site manager. If you are using this site, please be aware we try to get data up within 10 days of submission, BUT often things change our priorities, like getting food, sleep and some time for our families..., SO if it takes a bit longer, be patient, it IS coming.

Volunteers are needed to transcribe data for this site. If you are interested in helping out please drop me a line: Karen Zach, County Coordinator.

PLEASE use the search engine, and compile the data on your family, be assured that there is a 99.99% possibility that every bit of data we have is UP on the website already, we try to keep caught up. IF your research in the resources available here fail to gain the information you are seeking, PLEASE do not ask us to look for it on the site. If you can't find it here, Please post a QUERY to The Mail List. You can join the Mail List by clicking this link, and just sending the email that pops up.Conversely, you may also use the Message board for this county, That also gets sent to the list automatically. The PURPOSE of the list is two-fold, spread data, and connect people.

Thanks! to Ed Moyer, who, for ten years maintained the Fountain County site, for this Project. It is with great thanks that we have been honored by his trust in taking it over, and we will still be working closely with Ed.

Thanks Ed. We will take good care of it.
