Ancestor Lookup

The Ancestor Lookup is an important part of our application process. We suggest that all members consider taking a moment to see if their potential ancestor might already be a proven ancestor.

If you find that one of your Indiana pioneer ancestors has already been proven, send an email to with your line back to that ancestor. With this information, we can look through our archives and determine if we might have any documents or pertinent information to share to help with your ancestor’s application.

How to Search

Enter all or a portion of your ancestor’s LAST NAME into the Search box below and click on the Search button.

Keep Checking Back! This section is still being worked on so you are welcome to send an email to to see if your pioneer ancestor is in the database!
