The Friends Collection and Earlham College Archives is the official repository for the New Association of Friends and Indiana, Western, and Northern Yearly Meetings. Photocopies of the monthly meeting records for Indiana Yearly Meeting are available in the Genealogy Room. Patrons may browse these at their leisure. The remaining records are housed in a separate location. A member of the Archives' staff will need to assist you if you wish to study them.
