Welcome

Welcome to the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana. Since 1976, our Society has worked to promote genealogical research and enhance access to materials of interest to family history researchers.

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

At the present time we are working on converting our ACGSI free educational programs from in-person to virtual meetings utilizing the Zoom meeting website since we can no longer meet at the Allen County Public Library. We are hoping that by offering our programs virtually that we will be better able to reach our members who do not live in the Allen County area, those who might be home bound, or those who are self-quarantining. We are currently negotiating with our program speakers for this upcoming year which starts in September 2020. These programs are free, educational and relate to the subject of genealogy.

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 www.acgsi.org helpful for your research and encourage you to attend the free ACGSI monthly programs. See you there!
