The Indiana Jewish Historical Society is pleased to partner with the newly founded Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society. Their purpose is to present educational programs relevant to Jewish genealogy, to support their members in pursuit of their family histories, to collaborate with other organizations on areas of Jewish genealogical interests, and to protect, preserve and share Jewish genealogical records from the region. Make sure to check out their helpful links to get your research started.
The Allen County Public Library’s Genealogy Center in Fort Wayne is THE place to go for your genealogical research. In addition to the wonderfully knowledgeable and helpful staff, they also have numerous resources for researchers to utilize onsite. Let’s just say, we’re lucky to have the Genealogy Center in Indiana as people from all over the country travel here to conduct their research!
If you are looking for information on burial sites, or are conducting your own genealogical research, you may want to start by checking out the Online WorldWide Burial Registry on JewishGen or the various databases JewishGen has to offer.
Or you may want to explore the Indiana Archives and Records Administration (IARA). Their holdings of census records (State and access to Federal) may be just what you need to knock down the brick wall in your genealogical research.
