The Indiana Chapter of Palatines to America (German Genealogy Society) will hold their fall workshop from 9:30 am to 2:15 pm on Saturday, October 19 at the MCL Cafeteria South Banquet Room (3630 S.

Sessions will include the religions of ancestors during their time in Germany; the religions of ancestors during their time in America, and how to locate church records, with an emphasis on Indiana and the Midwest. Sue Dillon will conclude the day's events with a presentation about Frakturs and showing a family Bible that was printed in 1788 in Nuremberg. There will also be a service provided to translate German documents, and LEU credits are available for Indiana librarians.
