Indiana and it's State Library Situation HEADS UP!!!!!

I can not speak as clearly or as profound as many others but please as a genealogist or family research of any state, contact: " The Indiana Genealogical Society is encouraging people to contact Indiana legislators, particularly Rep. Tim Brown, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, asking them to not pass a budget that cuts spending for the state library's genealogy department{.Brazil Times: Local News: Pence plan to cut spending at Indiana State Library draws criticism, prompts letter-writing campaign (02/10/15) source.

Please, obviously none of these so called, privy people are genealogical/historical smart.
Google could never replace a Library.  WHO's pipe dream is that?   Google does reinforce documents some times, but we have to have the documents for them to help us.

Another rule is the answer is in the books and documents not on a computer somewhere.

There are lots of good programs to assist but nothing like what a State Library holds or libraries within that very state, no matter what state it is.

Please read this and write them a letter from Governor down to the local persons librarians. Those letters can be forwarded to the Governor for the news we need the State Library and the Libraries to be funded and operating.

 A celebration of a Bicentennial, in exchange for a library and data is very sad for education.

State Budget Director Brian Bailey needs to check out what is fact. Ancestry does not hold what is in the Indiana State Library.  It may have some data but surely not all  nor ever will.

We saved Michigan's state library, come on kick it up and save Indiana's.  I love the Michigan State Archives and Library. What a super place for knowledge.
