Query - in genealogy a form of questioning, to ask or inquire about someone or something related to family history research.

Search both the Allen INGenWeb and ACGSI.org sites before you Add A Surname Query with an Allen County, Indiana connection to see if your information is already on one of our pages.

Search the Surname Query Index. Surname searches and Queries were suspended after 1998 in favor of the Rootsweb Mailing Lists then restarted as Surname Query in September 2009.

The newspaper article, Siblings learn of each other via Web by Frank Gray published January 24, 2012 in The Journal Gazette newspaper discussed a local Fort Wayne woman whose interest in genealogy helped her find a 1997 query a genealogist placed on behalf of a man who she then learns was her brother, a brother she did not know she had! I did not find the 1997 query, but did find a January 17, 2011 query on GenForum and Ancestry.com Message Board. So be sure you leave surname queries in various locations, because we never know when or where the "right" person will find them.

The Genealogy Center at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana has a Surname Index of visitors who submit family surname information. They posted a photo of the registration screen and process on their April 29, 2014 Facebook page. They also have a Research Center that makes photocopies and conducts research for a fee. If you have a general question about their collection, or interest in the Research Center, telephone the library and speak to a librarian who will be glad to answer your general questions or send you a research center form. Telephone number 260-421-1225. Or email a general information question about the department: Genealogy@ACPL.Info.

Queries can also be submitted to the Allen County Lines quarterly newsletter of the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana, sponsor of this web site.

If you have a family web site please Contact Allen INGenWeb so we can include your family on our Family Web Site page.
