Everyone should stop here before they spend vacation time in Amish/Mennonite country. They give you so much information and help to dispel myths and common misconceptions about these folks.

We went to the Mennonite information center to learn more about the Mennonites. I had been doing some work on my family tree and found some ties to the Lancaster area. There are also opportunities to get a tour of the Amish Country.

No, the Mennonite Information Center does not offer ancestry services. The building beside them houses the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, and they have resources for doing ancestry research.
