Genealogy Workshop with Dr. Michael Lacopo

Genealogy Workshop with Dr. Michael Lacopo

The Indiana Room is sponsoring a free, all-day genealogy workshop featuring nationally known genealogy speaker Dr. Michael Lacopo. Join us Saturday, September 28, from 9:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The day will include two morning sessions and two afternoon sessions with a break in between if you’d like to run out and get lunch. This program will be held at the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library in the McMillan meeting rooms.

Born and raised in northern Indiana, Dr. Lacopo has been researching his own genealogy since he was a young boy.  He completed his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1991, then opened a veterinary practice, all the while continuing his genealogy research. (We all know it’s addictive!) Dr. Lacopo retired from veterinary medicine  in 2013 in order to pursue genealogical research full-time.

Dr. Lacopo is a popular speaker on the genealogy circuit, presenting at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conferences, the National Genealogical Society conferences, the Southern California Genealogical Society’s “Jamboree,” and countless other local and regional lectures.

During this genealogy workshop, Dr. Lacopo will be speaking on four different genealogy topics:

  1. Deconstructing Your Family Tree: Re-evaluating the Evidence
  2. Estate Files: Are you getting the most out of them?
  3. More Than The Census: Our Families DID Exist Within Those Ten-year Intervals
  4. “I Am Poor, Obscure, Plain, and Little”: Researching the Invisible Ancestor

Registration is required and limited. To register, go to and click on EVENTS. Questions? Contact or 317)-839-6602 ext. 2114.

Indiana librarians may earn up to 4 LEUs at this program.
