Michigan City in the Movies -- September meeting
Two twentieth-century movie stars were born in Michigan City: Charles Arnt in 1906 and Anne Baxter in 1923. (If you're the right age, you might remember her in Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments.") On September 14, La Porte County Genealogical Society members Gloria Arndt and Dorothy Palmer will tell us more about these two, their grandfathers, and how they remained connected to their Midwestern roots.
The society meets at 7 pm on the second Tuesday of every month at the Swanson Center for Older Adults, 910 State St., La Porte. The public is welcome at all meetings. For a list of upcoming programs and more information about the society's activities in awards, research,
publication, and records preservation, visit our web site.
Also at our web site, those who believe they have La Porte County ancestors (and can prove
it!) can find information on how to apply for First Families of La Porte (before December 1840), Pioneer Families (1841-1860), Settler Families (1861-1880), and Civil War Families (1861-1865).
