Last chance to join the trip to Allen County Public Library

Curt Witcher and Jane Lindsey at the ACPL in 2015

Only a few spaces are left for our August 16-22 trip to the amazing Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Deadline to sign up is June 15!

For more than 10 years, CGS has organized research trips to ACPL, the largest public genealogical library in the country. You can browse the ACPL website to get a sense of what it has to offer. The library offers access to over 513,000 rolls of microfilm and 55,000 compiled genealogy volumes, privately published family histories, an impressive collection of state and territorial censuses, and many other unique resources. It’s an invaluable repository for genealogists, and for those with family roots in Indiana, it's one of a kind.

This year, past president Jane Knowles Lindsey leads intermediate-level researchers in a new format: participants will do independent research but have the opportunity to network with others during the week.

This year’s trip runs concurrently with the annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. We have hotel rooms set aside for CGS members who wish to go to just the conference.

But the deadline to reserve your spot or hotel room is fast approaching! Contact Jane Lindsey by June 15 to confirm.
