Indiana Genealogist for March

Thanks to the St. Joseph County Public Library in South Bend, here are the feature stories in the March issue of Indiana Genealogical Society Quarterly:

"The Sultana Explosion," by Ron Hamilton, recounting a disaster in the Mississippi River north of Memphis 27 Apr 1865 that killed about 1900 people, many of them Union veterans -- more deaths than the Titanic.

"John Jansen, Redux," a followup to the December 2007 article, from reader Don Ebbeler

"Profiles of Indiana Congressmen 1897," compiled by Sandy Thompson from Biographical Sketches of the Members of the Sixtieth General Assembly of the State of Indiana (Indianapolis: M.R. Hyman Co., 1897), surnames A through L.

"Deaths of Spanish-American War Veterans," compiled by Ron Darrah from material in the Indiana State Archives.

The issue also includes 20 short regional items, and new editor Annette Harper on "The Rectangular Survey System in Indiana."
