My favorite genealogy repository is Kokomo-Howard County Public Library's Genealogy and Local History Department. This is where I work. We have friendly and knowledgable service, a book collection of over 13,000 books, clipping files, microfilm of newspapers, court records, WPA Vital Record indexes for Indiana and much, much more. Please come visit when you are in the neighborhood.
We also provide online databases for use in-house - Ancestry Library . com, footnote.com; as well as Heritage Quest for library card holders both at home and at the library and Kokomo Newspaper Archive is available by visiting the Genealogy Department Webpage and following the instructions.
Due to the upcoming remodeling project, we will be closed while we move the collection and set it up at the new temporary location (TBA). I expect this will be sometime in mid to late July until mid to late August.
