April News and Updates

        The BIG news for April is not only that the snow has finally melted in Kokomo, but that the Kokomo Civic Theatre collection has FINALLY been posted to the Howard County Memory Project!  Did you know that the Kokomo Civic Theatre has been entertaining audiences in Kokomo for 65 Seasons?  As I started scanning the playbills and scrapbooks, I was amazed at the amount of work that went into each production, and the amount of talent that Kokomo has produced.    Sixty-five years has produced a lot of memorabilia, so be sure and check back often, as the collection will be growing....kind of like the grass in Kokomo, finally!  You may want to put the dates May 30-June 1 on your calendar because that will be the final Kokomo Civic Theatre production for its 65th season:  Bye Bye Birdie I know I'm planning to go!!

Latest updates to the HCMP...

  • The Grad List Index for the local high school graduates have been  updated through 2008, thanks to some volunteers from the community. 
  • If you are looking for a wedding or birth announcement, you don't have to rifle through a stack of old newspapers.  Check out our Vital Records Newspaper Records database.  It is updated every month! 


~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.
