Research resource in that county where Purdue is

Maybe they were already all around and I just didn't notice them as much -- local, specialized genealogy libraries. A friend of a friend speaks well of one I haven't been to yet: The Tippecanoe County Historical Association's Alameda McCullough Research Library, about four blocks from the public library in Lafayette. Hours are somewhat limited and admission is $4, but here according to their web site you'll find "marriage applications and marriage records, probate and estate files and books, naturalization records, and mortgage books," as well as "guardianship books, funeral home records, Civil War enlistment data, and obituary indices." It's on my to-see list.

Must have gone right passed it when we were in Lafayette in May. If you go there's a Drive-Ins, Diners and Dives reviewed restaurant, The Triple XXX Family restaurant nearby. We did manage to visit the restaurant, but not the library.
