   VCPL Rooms A, B & C

This presentation discusses research in the “Colonial Era” which is generally considered to have begun in 1607 with the founding of Jamestown through July 4, 1776 with the Declaration of Independence.  A review of the thirteen colonies provides information on people of various nationalities, languages, religions, and political beliefs struggling to create a unique life experience while living under English Law.  

     Curt Sylvester is a past president of the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana, Inc. and is presently their chair of Education and Programming.  He also serves as the chair of Awards and Honors for the Indiana Genealogical Society. He has written six genealogical books and has three more in process. He was inducted into the Indiana Territorial Guard of the Indiana Genealogical Society after authenticating that he had eight great-grandparents that lived in Indiana before it became a state. He has presented at the Indiana Genealogical Society State Conference and for many genealogical societies and other organizations. He holds degrees from Indiana University and a doctorate degree from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. He lives with his family in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
