LAPORTE | October is Family History Month and a program on researching family history will be presented by Fern Eddy Schultz, LaPorte County historian, at 1 p.m. Saturday at the LaPorte County Historical Society Museum.
This program will focus especially on researching LaPorte County ancestors but many of the methods of researching may be applied elsewhere. Whether just a beginner or an advanced genealogist, this can be a primer or a refresher course for researching in LaPorte County. Come prepared to take notes. A packet of information will be provided.
Reservations are required by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday by calling (219) 324-6767, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or at the museum.
Regular museum admission fees apply for this program. Space is limited. A free-will donation will be accepted to cover furnished materials.
The museum is located at 2405 Indiana Ave. at the south entrance to LaPorte.
