|County History Preservation Society presents:|
|PORTER COUNTY, INDIANA|
|The major cities and towns of Porter County are Beverly Shores,
Burns Harbor, Chesterton, Dune Acres, Hebron, Kouts, Ogden Dunes, Portage,
Porter, Town of Pines and Valparaiso. This feature is part of a statewide
project focusing on all 92 Indiana counties and is forever a work in progress.
The goal of this endeavor is to provide rare primary source information to individuals interested in researching Indiana history and genealogy. Due to the availability of these old documents, the content presented for each county varies; however, all counties have multiple historical retrospects, maps, images from vintage postcards and a place titled Our Stories for you to record the achievements of your Pioneer ancestor.
This project currently has posted online for all Indiana Counties files (pages, images, etc.) including more than early biographies with portraits, miscellaneous biographical extracts, history related photos, maps and graphic representations of land patentee documents.
A significant amount of the information posted is accessible to all visitors; however, some of the information is available only to members. Like all historical organizations, the nominal membership fee charged for access is used to support the maintenance and continued growth of this organization, and specifically, all the features of the CHPS web site.
This site is not affiliated with, or otherwise supported by, any office or organization of the State of Indiana.
