Index Coverage

The local history database indexes items of historical significance to Elkhart County and City. Coverage is on topics, persons, businesses, and events that have current and historical significance to the Elkhart area.

Most of the items in the database index topics or articles that have appeared in the Elkhart Truth newspaper from 2001 to the present. There is currently only partial coverage of Elkhart Truth articles earlier than 2001.

The local history index originally existed in print form in card files located in the local history/genealogy area. Information on these cards has been entered into the Local History Database. Other types of Elkhart-related resource materials are also indexed.
