Follow Friday - ACPL Genealogy Center

I was going to wait a week to start my Follow Friday series. But then I found something I really wanted to recommend to everyone.

On the first of every month, the Allen County Public Library's Genealogy Center (in Fort Wayne, Indiana) puts out an email newsletter called "Genealogy Gems: News from the Fort Wayne Library". (No relation to Lisa Louise Cooke's site and podcasts of the same name).

The newsletter is packed with information about genealogy research. There are articles highlighting parts of the genealogy collection and preservation techniques. There is a calendar of events in the Fort Wayne area as well as where ACPL librarians will be speaking across the country.

If you are not already subscribed to this wonderful resource, you can find the directions and archives here.

In the January issue, it was announced that the library now has a blog "Genealogy Center" and Facebook fan page. You can find the Facebook page by searching for "Genealogy Center" on Facebook if the link does not work. I hope that both will continue to highlight the great things happening in Fort Wayne for the genealogy community and help all of us use the library more effectively.
