Library Receives $500 Grant from REMC


Thanks to a $500 grant from the Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC, the library now has a 12′ conference table, 17 comfortable chairs, and four 6′ tables.  Replacing the old folding tables and purchasing new chairs makes the library look more professional.  Working in the library is even more enjoyable with the new updated furniture.  Thank you REMC.

Journey into the Past

Our new book, Journey into the Past, is now available for pick up at the Genealogy Library in Center Point.  The library is open on Monday and Wednesday from 10:00 to 4:00.

Information in the book began as articles in The Brazil Times, published in Brazil, Indiana.  They were written by Clay County Genealogy volunteers and began appearing weekly on August 19, 2015.   The articles are about people, places, and events that shaped Clay County, Indiana.  Articles begin with the Indians in the county before Indiana became a state in 1816 and a county in 1825.

The book is 217 pages in length with an additional  22-page index of people and places.  The book is 6″ x 9″ with a spiral wire binding.  (See the post below for pictures of the cover of the book.)  The cost of the book is $23.54, which includes tax.  If you cannot come to the library to get your book, we will mail it to you for an additional $4.50 for shipping handling.
