Easy Access to Genealogical Information in the Tri-State by Browning Genealogy


Event Date

March 12, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Event Details

For many years Charles Browning, founder of Browning Funeral Home in 1954, maintained a database of obituaries culled from the Evansville newspapers and made it available to the local public libraries and online. In time a Local History Database was created. The Browning family has expanded their number of databases and the areas they cover. Carrying on the legacy begun by his father, Dr. Mark Browning will navigate the newly-expanded website and demonstrate the easy accessibility of the information his family is so generously sharing for genealogists and researchers of local and military history.

After the program: There will be a brief business meeting, followed by a mini-Workshop current Updates to tsgspaddlewheel.com. We will also have members available for one-on-one research assistance.

Dr. Browning, Board Member of BrowningGenealogy.org, continues the legacy of his father, Charles Browning, through his work directing the nonprofit archive. Mark is a hematologist-oncologist, philanthropist, and advocate for cultural and historical preservation in Evansville and the Tri-State Area. He helped create and implement the www.browninggenealogy.org database that provides user-friendly genealogical information for more than 28 Tri-State counties. He assists with the development of internships with high schools and colleges to facilitate active learning for subsequent generations. Collaboration with many county libraries, high schools and universities are one of his missions to ensure the sustainability of these historical preservation projects.
