Dr. Michael Lacopo was born and raised in northern Indiana. He started doing genealogical research as a hobby in 1980 to verify family stories he had always heard.

Michael has contributed to numerous periodicals and is a popular and respected speaker both nationally and internationally. His interests and strengths include Mennonite and European research. You can follow Michael’s research adventures at his blog at Roots4U.blogspot.com.
After and exciting and successful seminar in 2016, the seminar participants voted to have Dr. Lacopo return in 2017, and he graciously accepted. We are looking forward to another day of engaging presentations. Breakfast, snacks, and lunch are included in the registration fee, and door prizes will be handed out during the day.
