Fort Wayne has long been known as “a most German town,” with about 50% of its residents claiming German ancestry. The acclaimed Genealogy Center at Allen County Public Library (ACPL) is more than pleased to be the local host for the 2023 event, with support from local German societies, genealogical societies, and Visit Fort Wayne.
The 2023 IGGP International Conference will be held in downtown Fort Wayne at the Grand Wayne Conference Center and will offer three days of German-centric presentations in multiple tracks. Attendees will learn from top presenters with advanced proficiency in their fields of study, including genealogists, authors, historians and archivists. Those attending the conference will also have the opportunity to utilize the ACPL’s Genealogy Center’s historical and genealogical materials that number more than 1.2 million items in the physical collection. The library further offers access to dozens of major databases and thousands of smaller specialty data files. Researchers will have access to the expert staff who can assist them with finding their families’ histories and stories.
Join us 9 June – 11 June, 2023 for this exciting conference. Partnership Leadership Day will be 8 June, 2023. We look forward to seeing you there!
