Planning a high school or family reunion? Having trouble tracking down that long-lost classmate or third cousin? The Historical Genealogy Department owns a variety of sources that may be of help to you. Not only are there a number of books related to planning a reunion that you could look at, there are also sources such as Fort Wayne area school yearbooks, city directories, obituary indexes, marriage indexes, magazines and electronic databases that could help you locate your lost ones. Also keep in mind that some of the most popular "people finder" databases are available on the Internet including and for telephone and address listings, and the Social Security Death Index to search for those who may have passed away in the last 40 years. Finally, take a look at the "Finding People" and "Reunions" categories at Cyndi's List, one of the most popular genealogy-related websites, for more searching possibilities.
