Dropped in here at the beginning of our visit to Lancaster County. It proved to be very useful. Sunday is very quiet here so we managed to plan around this and visit Stasburg railway.

We sat through this presentation for the second time because we loved it 2 years ago. The woman who taught it was excellent and inspiring!

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.

The guide will advise you when you can take photos and when you can't. The Amish don't approve of photos of themselves, but if you are far enough away it might be all right.
