The Indiana Jewish Historical Society is pleased to partner with the Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society. Their purpose is to present educational programs relevant to Jewish genealogy, support their members in pursuing their family histories, collaborate with other organizations on areas of Jewish genealogical interests, and 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 an excellent place 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 say we’re lucky to have the Genealogy Center in Indiana, as people from all over the country travel here to conduct their research! Whether you are looking for information on burial sites or are working on your genealogical research, you may want to start by checking out the Online Worldwide Burial Registry on JewishGen or the various databases JewishGen offers.

Explore the Indiana Archives and Records Administration (IARA). Their holdings of census records (State and access to Federal) may be what you need to knock down the brick wall in your genealogical research.
