Throughout the month of October, the Allen County Public Library’s Genealogy Center is celebrating Family History Month (October) with an array of genealogy programming open to the community.
“Family History Month is a time for all of us to reflect upon our families, their history, and their stories. It is a reminder to ask questions, dig out our family photos, and explore our roots,” says Allison DePrey Singleton, genealogy services manager. “There’s no better way to understand who we are, than by exploring who we come from.”
