First Families of Carroll County Program Announced

The Carroll County Historical Society Museum has initiated a companion family history program to the First Families of Carroll County program. The new program is titled Second Wave. The family ancestry program honors the early settlers and their families, who helped build Carroll County.

The Second Wave program will encourage families to research and preserve their family lineage for future generations. Members of this program will have their names listed in the booklet of the Annual Old Settler's Meeting held each August.

To qualify for membership as a Second Wave family, citizens must provide documented evidence that their earliest Carroll County ancestor resided in the county between Aug. 2, 1855, and Dec. 31, 1900. A direct line from the applicant to their pioneer ancestor must be proven. This lineage will be included in the permanent genealogy collection of the Carroll County Historical Society and Museum.

Applications for the Second Wave program are available in the museum during regular hours: The museum also contains many resources for genealogy research. The application and information will be available on the Web site History book in second printing (Carroll County Comet - Delphi, IN, March 29, 2006)
