Activity Notes Drive to Fort Wayne, IN, is approximately 80 miles, taking about 90 minutes one way, with a class en-route. Lunch provided at the Library.
For a bit of energy before we travel to the genealogy center, we will have a buffet including eggs, bagels, muffins, and fruit, plus coffee, tea, juices, milk, water.
Prior to breakfast, you will have an opportunity to hike along one of Amigo's many trails. How many birds or flowers can you identify? Don't forget your camera and walking shoes. After breakfast during our travel to the Genealogy Center, we will have a "reminiscent writing" course which will provide you with an opportunity to sharpen your skills at recording those special stories that only you can tell. We will be given time to reflect on your past and what it has meant to you. We will arrive at the Center, provided with a brief orientation to the layout of the resources and then you will begin your personal genealogy research.
Provided by a local Irish restaurant, we will enjoy a plated meal in a private hall at the library, plus non-alcoholic beverages.
When you have completed you meal you may continue with family research until the mid afternoon. Before our departure, library staff will provide a question and answer time for any issues you may have encountered on your first time at the center. Upon the conclusion of our afternoon of research, we will begin our return to Amigo, stopping for dinner along the way.
At a local restaurant in Avilla, Indiana, enjoy a delicious plated meal, plus coffee, tea, water; other beverages available for purchase. While dining, listen to a brief presentation on the history of one of the oldest restaurants in Northern Indiana presented by the restaurant owner.
We will return to Amigo following our meal. We'll enjoy dessert upon our return (pie and ice cream). You will have time at leisure to relax and enjoy the fellowship with your fellow participants, begin work on your project, or head to bed early.
