The LaGrange County Public Library has part-time genealogy volunteers on call.  We will attempt to answer any genealogy requests that we receive, but we ask genealogists to request only very specific pieces of information, please.  In addition, please supply as much background information as possible, so we'll have something to work with.

We urge genealogists who need in-depth research to try consulting the LaGrange County Genealogist Barb Mulholland at, the Indiana Genealogy Society's Researchers List, or Allen County Public Library's Genealogy Department for local assistance.
