The La Porte County Genealogical Society will meet at 7 pm Tuesday, April 12, at the Swanson Center for Older Adults, 910 State Street, La Porte. Following the business meeting, the program will feature awards of the 2010 residency certificates, postponed from last December.
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.
It's not too early to apply for one or more residency certificates for 2011. Our web site has information for those who believe they have La Porte County ancestors (and can prove it!). There's 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.
