March meeting -- auction

Do you have too much genealogy "stuff" in your house? If so, bring the extras to the La Porte County Genealogical Society's meeting 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 8, at the Swanson Center for Older Adults, 910 State Street, La Porte. Your trash may be someone else's treasure, and vice versa. The society will hold an informal auction of the books, magazines, and other materials, and hopefully everyone will leave better off. This is the event planned for January that was snowed out.

The society meets at 7 pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Swanson Center, weather permitting. The public is welcome at all meetings. For more information about the society's activities in awards, research, publication, and records preservation, visit our web site at

It's not too late to sign up there for our annual April bus trip to the world-famous genealogy collection at Fort Wayne's Allen County Public Library.

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). You can also read or search back issues of the society's newsletter, December 2005 through December 2009, including genealogical and historical information from members' research and abstracting work in local records, on our blog at
