Allen County (Indiana-USA) Public Library Launches New Website

The Allen County Public Library (Fort Wayne, Indiana) has launched a new genealogy website- which includes several free databases and portals including Our Military Heritage. See: www.genealogycenter.org

For those who are not familiar with the Allen County Public Library it is known as one of the premiere genealogy libraries in the United States. The Fred J. Reynolds Historical Genealogy Department, located in the Main Library Branch of the Allen County Public Library, is the second-largest genealogy department in North America. A valuable online service of all is the "As a Librarian" section. Contact them at Genealogy@ACPL. Info for additional information about The Genealogy Center.

I typed in both "Jewish" and " Jewish Genealogy" into the search box and results were 242 for Jewish Genealogy both books and microfilms and "Jewish" 1, 458 for books, microfilms, magazines and newspapers.

If you are not located near Fort Wayne Indiana ask your local library if they can interlibrary loan something you find on the new website that is of interest to your genealogical research.
