    I found my family’s surname in the file. Since I don’t live in or even near Indiana, how can I learn more about what you have in their name? The surname is Watts.

    Hi, My name is Marilyn. I have the Ellison and the Morris surname in the index. Do you offer a service for people that can not get to the Historical Society that can do a search?
