Welcome to the Genealogy Department, where you can find all the information you need about the history of Owen County! Located adjacent to the front desk near the fiction section, you’ll find books, files, maps, and pictures, in addition to a microfilm machine with which you can view parts of local newspapers going back to 1888. Stepping directly into the vault you’ll find yourself in the Indiana Room, and to the left, you’ll see filing cabinets containing family files. We offer indexes to birth, marriage, death, and cemetery records, and books with collected information for specific surnames of Owen County families. The yearbooks date back to 1913! Online, you can take advantage of our subscription to and on our Online Resources page, Heritage Quest. If you need help finding anything, don’t hesitate to ask a staff member for assistance.
