October is Family History Month and The Genealogy Center would like to invite you to celebrate! In honor of this month, the Center offers a genealogical event a day, which means you have 31 opportunities to learn or participate in a genealogical activity.

Classes for the month will highlight researching genealogy in other departments of the Allen County library, cemetery research and symbolism, state and regional research, census, analyzing photographs, brick wall research, instructional sessions on some of our electronic databases, such as the Origins Network, Ancestry, and the Periodical Source Index (PERSI), and training on using some of the machinery in The Genealogy Center, as well as the return of our traditional Midnight Madness Extended Research Hours on Friday, October 26, offering the opportunity to do family history research until midnight.

For detailed class descriptions, more information, and to register for individual sessions, see the Family History Month brochure or contact The Genealogy Center at 260-421-1225 or email Genealogy@ACPL.Info.
