The Indiana State Library will host our third annual Indiana Genealogy and Local History Fair on Saturday October 22, 2011, in downtown Indianapolis from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. Admission is free and the fair is open to the general public. Visit the tables in the "Midway" to collect information from genealogical and local history organizations and Indiana public libraries, and shop the commercial vendors.

Arrangements have been made for parking in the Senate Avenue garage directly north of the library. The entrance and exit to the garage are off of New York Street. Parking is available for the event for $5.00 per car. Parking is also available on the street in metered spaces.

Three FREE programs will be offered throughout the day. Librarians can earn one (1) LEU per program for attendance. Our speakers will include:

What's New with Family Search--Deborah Engleking, Assistant Director of the Indianapolis Indiana Stake Family History Center
A Dozen Ways to Jump Start Your Family History Project--Loretto Dennis Szucs, Nationally known author and editor of Genealogical materials; Executive Editor and Vice-President of Community Relations for Ancestry.com
Hidden Sources--Loretto Dennis Szucs

The Fair will be held in the Indiana State Library. Lunch will be on your own in the downtown Indy area; maps to local eateries will be available. There is an eating area inside the Library with snack and soft drink machines nearby.
