December meeting -- dinner!

If you never quite get enough time to catch up with genealogy-minded friends, then the La Porte County Genealogical Society's annual dinner party on Tuesday, December 13, is just for you. The catered event will begin at 6 pm at the Swanson Center for Older Adults, 910 State Street, La Porte (weather permitting) and will not be followed by any business meeting. The second annual Genealogist of the Year award will be presented.

Advance paid reservations are required before December 6 -- $8 for members, $9.50 for non-members. Send to the society at 904 Indiana, La Porte IN 46350.
The society meets there on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm. The public is welcome at all meetings. Membership dues for 2012 are now due as well -- $10 individual, $12 family.

It's not too early to apply for one or more residency certificates for 2012. Our web site at 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
