Twenty-one members of the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society went to Fort Wayne to research at the Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library and to attend the 2016 Indiana Genealogy Society Conference. This three day trip, April 14th - 16th, resulted in many new genealogical discoveries and great fun for all.
