June 13, 1901 commencement program for Martinsville High School

Historical Commencement Programs for Indiana High Schools

Commencement programs are the official schedule for the ceremony graduates take part of. We normally call these graduation ceremonies today, but in actuality, they are commencement ceremonies, since walking down the aisle doesn’t guarantee you are actually graduating. Keep that in mind when viewing the following commencement ceremonies for Howard and Morgan counties, which were recently uploaded by the Indiana Genealogical Society and which they have digitized and provided free for anyone.

The First Murder Trial in Newton County Indiana

Although the celebrated criminal trial to which I would call attention, was held at Bunkum, across the state line, it deserves mention as a part of local history. Several of the persons actually participating in the trial afterward became citizens of Newton county. Furthermore, county and state lines did not form arbitrary divisions as they do at present. Bunkum was the center of a community of which Newton county was only a part.

Indiana Genealogy is being developed as a genealogical and historical resource for your personal use. While the original thought was to provide this website as a resource for finding genealogy and historical data concerning Indiana on the web, we have begun adding specific data to this site for your personal use.

In an attempt to further expand our offerings and refine your search, we have begun the creation of county websites. Those county sites can be found in the list of links to the right. While only a small portion of Indiana counties are presently listed, the amount of data for those counties is quite impressive.

The “Search Indiana Genealogy” search on the right side will search all of the Indiana Genealogy website, but will not search the data linked to from our offsite data pages.
