We meet the 3rd Monday night of each month at 6:30 p.m. usually at the Noble County Public Library. We do Not post our meeting minutes.
Our Genealogy Room is located in the Noble County Public Library on East Main in Albion, IN. We maintain a wonderful collection of books, manuscripts, various indexes, census information, etc. in the Indiana Genealogy Room.
