Welcome to the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana. This is the 40th year since ACGSI began and the 10th anniversary of our website, We are planning a number of special celebration events.

Our website information is focused on Allen County, Indiana and is constantly being updated with new features, records, charts, maps, and links. We welcome suggestions for types of materials to add. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to check out our blog and the Allen County GenWeb.

ACGSI presents programs on the second Wednesday of each month, September through June, at the main Allen County Public Library. Refreshments are served at 6:30 P.M. followed by our speaker of the evening at 7:00 P.M. Everyone interested in genealogy and family history is welcome as the programs are free, educational, and related to the subject of genealogy.

Interested in computers and genealogical research? Then our Genealogy Technology Group is for you. This group meets on the third Wednesday, September through May, beginning at 7:00 P.M., at the main Allen County Public Library. We will do our best to answer questions you may have about relevant topics and we discuss items of interest to the attendees.

Membership is open to anyone world-wide. As a member, you will receive access to the members-only section of this website along with Lines, our quarterly newsletter. Click on the link for an application form or join online.

I hope you will find helpful for your research and encourage you to attend the free ACGSI monthly programs. See you there!
