News and Updates    

       Here's what's new on the HCMP:     

  •  All the Carl Leiter articles have been converted and are now available to view!  The Landing Page still does not have the correct link - so for now you can click here to see the new Carl Leiter History collection!
  • Several churches have been upgraded into the new collection.  Look for Christ Lutheran, Hillsdale, Faith and Kokomo Zion UMC's new look when you click on this Churches link.
  • Marriage Records 1948-1949 have been added under Marriage Records.
  • The Surname File has been updated!  (Thanks, Ron!)

 ~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.
