Allen County, Indiana

This County Is Currently Available For Adoption

You have reached the GENEALOGY TRAILS - ALLEN County page of our Indiana website.
ALLEN County is in need of a HOST! If you have an interest in this county's history and genealogy,
please view our Volunteer Information Page and contact Nancy Piper

It is our hope that most, if not all, of Indiana's counties can have their own hosts, who can transcribe data and upload it to the county's webpage.
It's a lot of fun, with lots of great people with which to work. Please consider adopting this county for your own. We hope to work with you soon.
(html knowledge and a desire to transcribe data )

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site.
We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.
