1940 Census

Union County Indiana is one of the smallest counties in Indiana covering only 162 square miles.  Rich in farmland and natural resources, Union County boarders the state of Ohio.    The county was established 1821, formed from three other counties:;  Franklin to the south, Wayne to the north and Fayette to the west.     The Greenville Treaty Line dissects the three western townships making the sections it dissects  look "fractured".

Union County was used as a "stepping stone" by many pioneers heading toward the western lands.  Families came to the area, lived a few years and then moved on when land opened up farther west.    It was the birthplace of Generals, beauty queens, artists and one little girl that became a world famous "orphant".   The county is mostly agricultural with a few small factories.  It is the home of Whitewater State Park and the entryway to the Brookville Lake Reservoir.   Union County may be small in Indiana, but we are big in history.

About The INGenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Indiana, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. Contact the volunteer shown on the county page if you have a desire to add your data to the database. If the county in which you are interested does not have a coordinator and you wish to participate, please contact Debby Beheler, dbeheler@gmail. com   I am Karen Coffey  and I will be hosting this county.

You may notice a message beside the county listing indicating it is available for adoption. This means that while the county page has been created, it needs someone to take it over. If you would like to adopt a web page for one of these Indiana counties, please contact the current owner of the page, whose name is listed at the bottom of their county page, or on the Indiana Genealogy page beside the county.
