Allen County Public Library

Allen County Public Library:Genealogy: "This renowned collection includes more than 350,000 printed volumes and 513,000 items of microfilm and microfiche. Patrons of the department also have access to major online databases at:

* America's GenealogyBank
* ProQuest Obituaries

As a cooperating partner with the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, the department can provide access to more than 2.4 million rolls of microfilmed genealogical and historical records for a small handling fee per roll of film requested.

Due to the collection's size and continuous growth, the information in the following holdings summary will necessarily be brief and representative in nature.

Be sure to use the library’s online catalog to prepare for your trip. It will assist in orienting you to the scope of our collection and help you to plan your actual research time in the department. [If you have bookmarked this page, be sure to check the library’s main web page for any important news and announcements regarding hours or closures.] Librarians experienced in genealogical research are always on duty to answer your questions. Please notify us in advance if you plan to bring a group."

and my thanks to Randy Seaver:-

Genea-Musings: CGSSD meeting on Saturday, 19 January: "PERSI is one of the most important 'traditional research' resources because most periodical articles are not every-word indexed in any database (only if the publisher has an index either online or on paper). The records in the periodicals are often unique and very helpful to solving brick-wall research problems"
