Genealogical Society of Marion County
Welcome !!!
GSMC is located at Memorial Park Cemetery 9350 East Washington St.  Originally built in the 1920’s, this historic building served as the offices of Memorial Park until the 1990's. Now it is ours for many years to come! We have an expanded and more accessible library, as well as the ability to host more educational programs.
The Genealogical Society of Marion County's research library is open every Wednesday and Thursday from Noon - 4 pm beginning November 1st.  We also schedule appointments for research at other times.  Please contact
 Directions: Take I-465 to E. Washington Street.  At the exit, head east.  We are located about 1/2 mile east of Post Road. Our library is inside the grounds of Memorial Park Cemetery.  As you enter the cemetery we are on the right.


Thanks for a great conference!

We had a great conference with a record number of attendees.  Thanks to our speaker Julianna Szucs Smith for a great day along with donating almost $1000 worth of door prizes.   Also a big thank you to Allison Deprey Singleton and the Indiana Historical Society for being such wonderful hosts.
