A Century of Indiana History

It's funny how you find things out. A note in the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society's August/September newsletter mentions that the Indiana Magazine of History is on line from its 1905 founding up to two years ago -- digital images of the original, and every word searchable.

Scanning the September 1908 issue, it strikes me that the historical journal in those days was like many state genealogical journals are today -- relying heavily on transcriptions of documents, rather than original analytical work. So there's hope!
