I am currently planning on attending a Civil War Symposium in Fort Wayne Indiana at the Allen County Library on Friday and Saturday Oct. 8 and 9, 2010.
If any of my fellow Milwaukee researchers would like to tag along, I would welcome the company.
The Allen County library has a large collection of genealogy materials from all states. I have heard it is definitely worth the trip out there if one can go.
It is approximately 5-6 hours to drive out there (depending on Chicago Traffic). I don’t know when I will be leaving yet. It will either be Thursday or very early Friday to give me time to do research at the library at least for a few hours. (first session starts Friday at 2:30) (It will also depends on the other passengers).
If you are interested let me know. You would be responsible for all your own costs (admission, hotel, food, etc.) I am willing to split a room if you are comfortable with that.
Let me know by sending me an email, placing a comment below or calling 262-783-1620.
