“Exploring French Settlers in Allen County, Indiana” presented by Martine Copeland on September 11, 2019 – Free Education Program

The area now known as Allen County has a long history of French explorers, traders, and settlers. Many of the county’s prominent families share in this French heritage. This presentation will share research into this segment of our county’s heritage.

Martine Copeland, born and educated in France, came to the United States as a guest lecturer at the University of South Carolina. She later moved to New York City where she worked on Wall Street and as a real estate broker. Her research in Allen County was sparked by a surname found on a stained-glass window at Saint Louis Besancon Catholic Church.

Guests are Always Welcome!

The second Wednesday evening September to May at 7:00 p.m. is our FREE genealogy program in the Discovery Center on the second floor in the Genealogy Center at the Allen County Public Library (ACPL), 900 Library Plaza, Fort Wayne, Indiana.
