You like us! You really like us! At least we hope you do.

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Goodreads, Flickr, CafeMom – the list goes on and on and on. You probably already know what these names have in common. Not so long ago, I wouldn’t have had any idea what these were. Of course, my teenage daughter could’ve filled me in if I were willing to risk the eye-rolling when I asked her.

Social networking sites have become a really important way for people to pass along information and catch up with each other. Social media has also become a way that individuals and organizations  change history. Just think about recent world events. Keep track of how often someone mentions a Facebook post or something they saw on Pinterest in one day. It’s astounding!

A lot of history organizations are using social media to keep in touch with their members and communities. And, we’re joining them. IHS Local History Services has launched a Facebook page so that we can share the information about the resources and workshops offered by LHS and, hopefully learn about what Hoosier history organizations are doing. We’re a very social department and want to share the love.

Consider clicking on the “like” us on button on our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/IndianaLHS

You’ll connect with LHS and your colleagues around the state. You might be surprised by what you discover. And, we might be convinced to share some of our favorite Indiana places to eat.

Hi Tamara, I'm not sure if IHS is the proper venue for my question, but I'm hoping you can at least steer me in the right direction. I've written an historical romance during the Civil War. I've been giving Author presentations to various groups (Optimist's Club, Friends of the Arts, Adams County Library, Whitley County Library, Tri-Kappa, and several private groups.) I'm scheduled to speak at the Monroeville Historical Society, Well's County Library, Adams County Heart Club as well as other local groups and even eighth grade writing classes at Bellmont Middle School.) My question is: Is there a list of Historical Societies in Indiana that I may contact to see if they may be interested in my presentation? Many find my extensive historical research enlightening. I'd be happy to explain what my presentation entails, if you'd like. You may also visit my website: monickoldykemiller.com if you want to check out my credentials. I'm simply expanding my search for venues and thought maybe IHS might know how to contact some of these societies. Thank you for your time and consideration. Your servant, Monica
