Fort Wayne is often called the City of Churches even listed as such on Wikipedia. This page lists churches in Allen County prior to 1920. Some of these churches no longer exist, many have changed their names, and some have merged with other churches. There is a short history on each church, a list of what records the church keeps, and how you may obtain these records. Many churches records have been copied and are available at the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center. Church Burial Records Index is at the ACPL Genealogy Center
Many of these churches had their histories included in the 2006 publication History of Fort Wayne & Allen County, Indiana 1700-2005 Volume 2 starting on page 122. You can request Lookups from our Volunteers or purchase the $124..95 two volume set.
