Here's what's new on the HCMP:     

  • In celebration of Indiana's Bicentennial, Kokomo-Howard County Public Library, along with the Howard County Historical Society, will be creating an interactive map for you to share photos and memories of special places in Howard County. From February 1 through June 30, stop by the Genealogy & Local History Department at KHCPL Main and we'll scan the items and collect the informaiton. Submision times are during normal business hours:
        • Monday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m
        • Friday & Saturday: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

There will be a limit of 10 items per person and items must be directly related to Howard County.

We'll have the map on a big-screen TV, noting these special locations on display August through November.

 

 

~The Howard County Memory Project website was established in 2002 and focused on local high school yearbooks.  Within this site today, you will find multiple databases and digitized items especially for genealogy and local history researchers.  We continue to add items of interest and we hope you will check back often as this site continues to grow.
