School Records Database Added
A new database, Graduates of Hendricks County Common Schools (1903), has been added to the Hendricks County GenWeb site. The database is an index of a ledger book of the 1903 graduates of the county's common schools (which went up to 8th grade), as found in the School section of the Hendricks County Archive Scans. The index includes some details about the students, including their age (the youngest graduate was 13; the oldest, 20). To see the full details, download the digital file from the Archive Scans site, or use their page-by-page viewer (best viewed in Internet Explorer)--the ledger book has the names of their teachers and even the grades that the students received.
