Over the past thirty years, the Allen County Public Library (ACPL) Genealogy Center has created more than 2.5 million searchable records in PERSI, indexing every article from more than 8,000 different periodicals. These include magazines, newsletters and journals, according to location, topic, surname, ethnicity and methodology.

These latest new additions include images of the original periodicals, which Findmypast has matched to the index as part of our promise to launch the most complete version of PERSI online. For more information about the latest updates, read our May update blog post.
