At the Allen County Public Library

We are half-way through our 8th annual research trip to the Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Our attendees are hopefully finding things (there's never a guarantee) and we are answering questions as we get them and directing them to sources that hopefully will help.

This is my first time in the completely remodeled library. The new facilities are greatly expanded and the completely open stacks are wonderful. The library has many more new computer terminals and the expanded facilities make researching much easier than in the past. For those who are not aware, the Allen County Public Library has one of the largest genealogical collections in the United States (more information can be found on the library's genealogy home page).

We have even tentatively set our dates for next year's trip as 28 May through 1 June. If you weren't able to join us next year, mark your calendars and check out our trip webpage which will have updated information in the near future.
