What’s New at ACGSI.org for April 2022

New Allen County, Indiana records added to our www.acgsi.org website. Many items are Public, while some are Members Only.  Your financial Donations, Volunteer time, articles for Lines, Certificate research, and Membership fees make it possible to maintain and add more items online to our ACGSI website.

ACGSI volunteers are now indexing the 1950 census of Allen County. Visit the 1950 Census Index to monitor our progress. We have a “live” counter on our home page www.acgsi.org that updates as indexed names are added to our page.

Aboite, Adams, Cedar Creek, Eel River, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake, Madison, Marion, Maumee, Milan, Monroe, Perry, Pleasant, St. Joseph, Scipio, and Springfield Townships are complete with the exception of areas within the Fort Wayne city limits. Indexing work is ongoing. The official population count for Allen County was 183,722, but we are indexing a few additional names which were not included in the official count.



We are also adding videos of our Free monthly online Zoom Programs in our Members Only section.
