About the collections



The Shelby County Public Library's Genealogy and History Department provides housing for documentation dating as far back as 1822 for Shelby County, Indiana and surrounding counties. Currently, over 3200 family and history folders are available for the general public to access within our facility. These files contain invaluable information from Shelby County’s earliest organizations and settlers – many who traveled from Ohio, Pennsylvania, the Carolinas, Virginia and Kentucky. The library is in the process of scanning a portion of these resources so the public can access this information online.

The library could use your help! Please contact Judy Cheatham (317-398-8144/jcheatham@sscpl.lib.in.us) if you are interested in volunteering to help scan documents or if you have a collection that you would like to donate to the department. The department also regularly holds classes for people who would like to learn more about tracing their ancestry. Contact the department (317-398-8144) for more details.
