(Note from Vicki – I was reminded about this wonderful genealogy resource. Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
– It will accept your genealogy research if your family does not want it after you pass – remember to put your genealogy work into your will – using form ‘My Genealogical Will For Preserving My Family History”.
– It has some great free databases available on-line, see link below.
-It might be worth a road trip to do research on their in-house databases there, or take one of their many workshops.)

About Our Databases
Our Goal is to make your search successful
Our databases are part of the unique collection of print materials, microtext, online resources, and staff expertise that comprise the great research experience in The Genealogy Center.
The Databases and Files have been compiled by the library and its various volunteer corps or have been given to The Center to post on the web for free use by all. Each database can be searched separately. Please be certain to read the details about each database, including search tips, for the best searches possible. On The Genealogy Center main page, in the Discovery box, there is a place for you to search all of our databases at once.
