Vicki’s note – (CAGGNI) Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois is planning a road trip to Allen County Public Library on June 15 -17, 2017. This is a genealogist’s destination archival library. There are other postings about Allen County Public Library on the BLOG, as this Library accepts anything genealogy from anyone throughout the country, and uses volunteers to organize it into a usable form for all to use. Then they keep a copy and give back a finished volume to the donor. The Library has a huge collection, hence the overnight stay to get a full days’ research at the Library.
Various Stateline Genealogy Club @ Beloit Public Library members have shown interest in taking a BIG road trip to this Library. I will look into the possibly of what we can do, as it would be more feasible to go in conjunction with a bigger group, than on our own. Stay tuned for more information as I learn more.
