Genealogists of all levels often don't realize the AMAZING collection of material held at ACPL. Yes, it is heavy on the mid-west, but attendees in the past have found invaluable tax lists, privately published genealogies and more. 

In addition to the one-of-a-kind books obtained from their unique publishing program, ACPL has ALL the references in PERSI. For a description of this amazing resource, take a look at the Family Search wiki.  

If the PERSI information doesn’t pique your interest, you might want to look at the ACPL website.  It will take you to many valuable links that can be used in the library, and some even at home. Be sure to look at the pathfinders tab and library catalog.

If you are lucky enough to have Indiana families, there are countless resources available to further your research. 

Jeff has reserved fantastic rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott. He also arranged to have Harold Henderson, CG, provide lectures and guidance. If you haven’t met Harold yet, you are in for a real treat!      

For more information you can also look at CGS blog postings  about past trips all the way back to 2007!    

Having lead this trip several times, I can highly recommend this research adventure.  You will not be disappointed. Register soon on Eventbrite
