The conference takes place at the Grand Wayne Convention Center, and is hosted by the Allen County Public Library and the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana. Anyone interested in tracing their family history is welcome to attend more than 160 educational sessions, plus optional luncheons, workshops and special events.
