Index of Howard County Wills 1844-1930 off site

Marriages in Howard County were recorded starting in 1844, while births and deaths were not officially recorded until 1882. Even then, there are many pre-1900 and turn-of the century births and deaths that were not recorded. If the Birth or Death occurred between 1875 and 1920, the record may be recorded in the Master Index Books; the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library Genealogy and Local History Department has these master indexes available on microfilm.

All records are listed in date order; therefore one-year time frame must be specified for any search. The cost for this search as of 2011 was $7.00 per name, per search. IF the search is successful, the Health Department will send a genealogy information sheet, which includes all the information on the record.
