Allen County Public Library (ACPL) Links to SFA Archives

In 2015 the SFA gave the Allen County Library (ACPL) our SFA Index Cards and Manila Folder Document Files to preserve them for us and any other researcher.  In 2018 ACPL received a final set of boxes from Rose Newton’s estate.  The library has been diligently scanning our records to allow us to see them.  On Sept 7th, 2019 we received notice they had opened the link to our card file scans and some Folder scans.  This was no small chore as they have produced over 40,000 pictures from our collection.  A vast amount of time and effort went into scanning and filing all the documents and there are still more to go.  The ACPL people have struggled with our “Sheldon Numbering” system and what is written on the cards and folders.  To see what they have accomplished so far, you can go to their site of Sheldon Family Resources and use their search engine.

You can also click here and see a listing of scanned documents.  Click on the left column number and see the Card Scan or on the Folder Link to see the folders collected for the named person.
