Genealogy & Historical Room

Genealogy & Historical Room

The JCPL Historical Room is located at our Franklin Branch. Historical Room resources can be accessed during library hours. Visitors are asked to sign in at the Adult Reference Desk before entering.

The primary focus of our collection is Johnson County history and genealogy, but we also have numerous resources for other Indiana counties, Indiana in general, and other states.

The Johnson County Public Library staff will provide limited research assistance for specific questions from materials in the Historical Room. Dates, location, names (with variant spellings) should be specific and legibly written. Library staff is not able to do extensive research. To submit a research request, click here and fill out the form as completely as possible. Please consult the Research Policy before submitting your question.
