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.

ACGSI presents free programs on the second Wednesday of each month, September through June, at the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center. The presentations cover a variety of worldwide genealogy-releated topics that are helpful in doing research. Refreshments are served at 6:30 P.M. followed by our speaker of the evening at 7:00 P.M.

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!
