Madison County Historical Society



Use our libraries to research a project, an ancestor or look for a town or city.  Volunteers are available to help you every step of the way.


Family History and Genealogy


     The public is invited to use our libraries and materials to look for family histories, special projects and public records.  Family Files are kept on Madison County families and include thousands of names on file.  We keep these records and documents for the use of our members, historians, and interested family genealogists. 

     We are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are located at 15 West 11th Street, Anderson, Indiana.  Our mailing address is Madison County Historical Society, P. O. Box 696, Anderson, IN  46015-0696.



     NEWS:  MCHS is a NON-profit organization.  However, there are many expenses involved in the research process.  Therefore, it has become necessary to charge a nominal fee for this service effective October 1, 2021.


$10.00 nonrefundable fee for up to one hour and then $10.00 each additional hour

$1.00 for each page of copied text

$5.00 for each page of hard copy of a photograph

    When your request has been received, our contact person will study and estimate your cost using the above fee schedule.  Then, you will be contacted with the estimated charge.  Once your payment has been received by CHECK or PAYPAL, your research will begin.  If the final cost has exceeded what you have paid, you will be notified via email.
