VINE  (Vital INformation Exchange)  Project Overview HOME


    The Vital Information Exchange, (VINE), is a collaborative state wide database that is composed of Indiana local history and vital records from Indiana libraries, historical societies, genealogy societies, and related organizations. The database is designed to allow participants and users to obtain access to Indiana local history and vital records through an Internet searchable database. Since the VINE is Web-based, no additional software needs to be downloaded or installed. The database is searchable by county, event, or through a general surname search of all records. These records are available to the public at no charge and include a host of records such as: birth, marriage, death, divorce, obituaries, court records, newspapers, scrapbooks, yearbooks, church records, military records, and many other record types.
