The Allen County Public Library (ACPL) in Ft. Wayne Indiana is the second largest genealogy library in the country. Despite its size and vast collection, the library staff has done an exceptional job of organizing its resources into an understandable and easily accessible collection.
If this is your first visit to ACPL, or you have not yet visited the new library building which opened in 2007, CAGGNI believes you will find the following tips and suggestions helpful. Additionally, since knowledge of what to expect and preparation in advance promises a rewarding experience, we hope these tips will make your visit less stressful and even more successful.
What to Bring
Of course you will bring your personal research tools along with notepaper and writing utensils, but what else might be helpful?
Make your first stop in the library at the Genealogy Center's Ask Here desk on the second floor.
Preparing for the Visit from Home
The ACPL has created an excellent online presence and provides multiple ways to prepare for your visit from home. Take the time to explore each of these resources prior to your trip.
If you take time to prepare in advance, you will have a more enjoyable visit. You will also have a much better chance of success. Good hunting!
