About UsSociety Background
In January 1976, the Fort Wayne Park Department sponsored a Senior Citizen Genealogy Club. By November the Club had evolved into the Allen County Genealogical Society, and membership was opened to the public. Charter Memberships were offered through the end of 1976.
A Genealogy Seminar, open to the public, was initiated in 1979. Several projects were adopted by the Society with the goal of publication. In the Spring of 1980, ACGSI published the first volume in a planned series of Allen County cemetery records and sponsored the publication of a Visitor's Brochure to aid genealogists using the Allen County Public Library.
Guest speakers enrich the monthly meetings, and in-service workshops are offered periodically for the edification of the members. Members receive Allen County Lines, a quarterly publication issued each September, December, March and June. Back issues may be purchased at the current price. Some issues are no longer in print.
