InJune 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana ComprehensiveGenealogyDatabase. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all countiesin Indiana where collected databases would be stored. The databaseswereindexed and cross-linked so that even if an individual were found inmorethan one county they could be located in the index. At the same time,volunteerswere found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databasesandgenerally oversee the contents of the web page.

"A Bit ofHistory"
DelawareCounty is located sixtymiles northeast of Indianapolis and is bounded by Grant and BlackfordCountieson the north, Jay and Randolph Counties on the east, Henry County onthesouth and Madison County on the west. Since its organization in 1827,DelawareCounty has grown from a small Indian village to an importantmanufacturingcenter.
Delaware County was named forthe Delaware Indians, an Eastern tribe which was slowly pushed intoOhioand finally settled in east central Indiana during the 1770's. TheDelaware Indiansestablished several towns along the White River, among theseMuncietown,near present day Muncie. In 1818, under the Treaty of St. Mary's OhiotheDelawares ceded their holdings in Indiana to the United Statesgovernmentand moved westward. In 1820, Delaware County was opened for settlement.
