Be sure to visit the Indiana Genealogy and Local History Fair this Saturday, October 22, 2016, 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.!






Visit us at the National Library Bindery Company table to see examples of our work. We would be glad to discuss making new books, such as a family genealogy, or restoring and repairing old books, such as a family Bible handed down for generations.

“The Indiana State Library will host the annual Indiana Genealogy and Local History Fair in downtown Indianapolis. Admission is free and open to the general public. This year’s theme is “200 Years of My Indiana Home,” examining the lives and times of Hoosiers throughout the years and exploring the homes and neighborhoods in which they lived.  Attendees will learn how to incorporate local history, architecture, house history, and maps and other land record resources into their family research. Jill Morelli will speak on house histories – looking at the “genealogy” of your house, and using Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps in your research.  Ann Staley will be speaking on the everyday lives of our ancestors.  She will also examine city directories, how to locate them, and how to utilize them in your research.  Visit the tables in the exhibition hall to collect information from genealogical and local history organizations and Indiana public libraries, and shop the commercial vendors.
The following fabulous door prizes will be given away:

1 annual World Explorer individual memberships to
1 annual subscription
1 annual subscription
1 annual subscription
1 AncestryDNA kit
and more!”    —

Book Problems Solved!

Split Before

Before — an email from a customer: “I just received a new book in damaged condition. This book is put out by a press in Budapest, Hungary and it is difficult and expensive to obtain. I am planning to use this book often as a reference text, and I want a secure binding that will last.”

Split After

After — “I just wanted to tell you again how pleased I am with this work. I’ve been using the book and it is very well done. And what a great job on saving the inside cover with the diagrams. Much appreciated.” – Peter M.
