“French Migration to Allen County, Indiana with a Special Nod to Alsace”” – November 10,, 2021 – Free Genealogy 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. Martine has compiled a database of more than 30,000 people who immigrated from France to Allen County. This list may be viewed at: https://www.genealogycenter.info/search_allencountyfrenchcomp.php
