There are many types of societies that can help with your family history research. Genealogical, historical, lineage, veterans and ethnic societies, family associations, and fraternal organizations are especially helpful to family historians because of the records and resources they collect, transcribe, and publish. See the United States Societies Wiki article for directories to help locate county and state societies.

Genealogical and historical societies often maintain a genealogical file for historical families of the area and may sponsor publications like those cited in the Indiana Genealogy and Indiana Periodicals Wiki articles. County genealogical societies and county historical societies help family historians by collecting information about residents in their area. The addresses of the state genealogical and state historical society are listed in the Indiana Archives and Libraries Wiki article.

Lineage societies, such as the DAR, Colonial Dames, General Society of Colonial Wars, and the Sons of the American Revolution, require members to prove they are descended from certain people, such as colonists or soldiers. The applications for membership in these societies are preserved, and many are on microfilm at the Family History Library. In Indiana there are many members of national lineage societies described in the United States Societies Wiki article .
