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.


Welcome to our new website, we are still working on it and adding good Clay County, Indiana information. Please bear with us as we make the transition.  More CCGS content should be added soon! We will be adding all the information from the old website and should be fairly up to date in a week or two. Just in time for the fall quarterly update. Check back on this page for all updates to the website and the most recent information. Thanks for visiting with us.

As always, if you have any comments or questions please use our CONTACT  form

or call the library on Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday between

1:00 and 4:00 p.m.  at  1-812-835-5005
