RESEARCH TIP: Crawfordsville Library

When searching for your Hendricks County ancestors, don't forget to check the records of neighboring counties. One online resource that shouldn't be overlooked is the Crawfordsville District Public Library. Their Local History section has various Montgomery County databases, many of which also contain digitized records. Especially helpful are their database of the county's marriage licenses (which goes up to 2001) and their databases of vital events (births, marriages & deaths) that are mentioned in area newspapers.

Crawfordsville, located along Interstate 74, was often a destination for Hendricks County residents - particularly those from the northwestern part of the county. Its newspapers frequently published news items from Hendricks County, including obituaries which may not be found elsewhere.
