Who's A Hoosier? Who and What Makes Indiana Great?

by Delia Bourne | Feb 22, 2016

In celebration of the state’s bicentennial, The Genealogy Center invites Hoosiers to contribute images of “life lived in the small places” as that is what makes, and has made, Indiana great. We are interested in old and new images of daily life and the people of Indiana that showcase Hoosier life. These can include children at play, people at work, people hanging out, sporting events, homes and buildings, and so much more.

The Genealogy Center will collect “Who’s a Hoosier?” images through December 11, 2016 in honor of Indiana’s 200 years of statehood. Contribute often as you celebrate family, community, and special events throughout the year.

To show your Hoosier pride, please contribute pictures along with descriptions of the images, detailing who and what makes Indiana great!
