GENTREK: Genealogy Humour. Genealogists have been known to have a sense of humour– even when they weren't TRYING to be funny. This session is dedicated to them!
Your Chat Hosts, Jayne McCormick and DaePowell.
Thanks, Dae. I sort of figured that they would be there, but when you mentiononed The Genealogy Center, I thought that maybe it was a website that was new to me.
Since your article mentioned Ross County several times, I decided to take a quick look at serveral sites. My ggg grandparents lived there in the early 1800s.
The Ohio Historical Society on-line holdings include a great deal of information on the Indian Mounds, a large collection of military records and documents from the War of 1812, and a sizable holding on candidates from early elections.
The State Library of Ohio has many indexes on line. This library is also the official state archives. They say that they are in the process of indexing the local government records in their collections, and as they are completed, they will go on-line.
US GenWeb for Ross County, Ohio, has a few land records.
The microfilms are at the FHC in SLC. You can order them to be sent to your local FHC or many of the libraries who are part of the service.
You mentioned that the microfilms were available in The Genealogy Center. Is that someplace on-line or otherwise?
Our library system used to have Godfrey, but gave it up a while back. We also at one time had Sanborn Maps, but, alas, they are gone from their system too. Budget plays havoc with our genealogy!!!! It is nice to know we can, with a bit of driving, get to the FHCs to take advantage of some of these programs.
