I truly enjoy the stop at the Mennonite Info Center. It is enlightening to see the tabernacle reproduction -- it allows the OT text to make more sense.

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.
