The Allen County Public Library is known for its vast collection of genealogy resources.
Many of them are available online: 


The Michigan death records collection at Seeking Michigan, covering the years 1897 to 1920, is now largely complete. There are now more than 960,000 death certificates available for free at this site, meaning that the project is now 99 percent complete. These records - never before available electronically - are indexed for easy searching by name, death date, location and age, and hold tremendous research opportunities for genealogists, historians and students. Seeking Michigan is a project of the Library of Michigan and the Archives of Michigan.
