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.

There is a small general information area, but we somehow expected more detailed information about the Amish and Mennonites. During a trip almost 30 years ago, we received mush more information; it was probably a different place that we couldn't find this time.

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.
