Family History and Genealogy

The Family History Files we keep are for the use of our members, historians, and interested family genealogists.

We encourage all interested Madison County researchers to add your family history to our collection with either an Ancestral Family Chart, stories, and/or books you have written.

Items and materials can be brought to the MCHS offices where we will copy the information and return the originals to you.  We are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are located at 15 West 11th Street, Anderson, Indiana.

Also, feel free to mail family charts, histories, stories, photos, and other materials to us.  Our mailing address is Madison County Historical Society, P. O. Box 696, Anderson, IN  46015-0696.  If you wish any mailed material back, please include instructions to that effect, a return address, and postage.

Libraries, Research, and Materials Available


The public is invited to use our libraries and materials to look for family histories, special projects and subject research.  The Nicholson Research Library and the Genealogy Library are both tremendous resources for any research subject.  We are continuing to update and add to our databases.  Our volunteers are eager to help you find the information you seek.


Please be aware that we can not do complete family histories, however, if you would like a search for birth, death, obits, and/or other family information, we can help you.  Since much of our correspondence is now in the form of e-mails which can get your requests done quickly, feel free to use the form below.  The form has a message box that expands, so please, fully explain what your query is about, include such items as dates(1884), names, (i.e. Joseph Daniel Jones), father's name, professions(i.e. farmer, wood cutter), and locations(i.e. townships; cities like Anderson, Pendleton).
