An update from the President
The Board of Directors will be gathering in Fort Wayne, Indiana. We will be visiting the Allen County Public Library to go through the Sheldon records donated to them in 2014. We have negotiated for a block of rooms nearby but await the group number to make your reservation. Stay tuned.
The dates to mark on your calendar are
Wednesday, Sept 22 thru Saturday, Sept 25, 2021.
The Allen County Public Library (ACPL) is the second largest collection of genealogical records in the United States. Having just been there, it is awe-inspiring. The largest is the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. In 2014 the Sheldon Family Association donated a large volume of its records for storage and preservation. In collaboration with the SFA, the ACPL has been gradually uploading scanned records onto the Sheldon Family site located on their website. If members are interested in joining us in Fort Wayne and helping us review the remaining records, we welcome you. You are also welcome to observe the Board Meeting that we will be having. We would truly enjoy interacting with you as we want to understand your needs and desires.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Fort Wayne! Stay tuned to the Sheldon Family Association webpage at https://www.sheldonfamily.org, the Spring issue of the SFAQ, and Sheldon Family Association on Facebook for updates on the location of the meetings and room rates.
