I'm trying to organize things a bit so I've made threads in the Discussion Forum for each county. If you know where the people you are researching lived, please post your queries, information, etc. in the appropriate thread/county. If you don't know where in Northeastern Ohio the people you are researching lived or if they lived in multiple counties, go ahead and post to the Comment Wall below. Also, if you feel your post is urgent or you want it to be viewed by the whole group, post to the Comment Wall. As always, everyone is also still welcome to start their own discussion threads.

Since Genealogy Wise doesn't allow the option of displaying ALL Discussion Forum threads, some won't appear below. If you don't see the county or discussion that you are looking for below, click on "View All" in the bottom right of the Discussion Forum and you should be able to
find it there. Thanks!

Hi, I am researching the Carson family of Trumbull and Mahoning Counties.  Trying to find the wife of Samuel Carson born abt 1770, possibly in Dauphin County, PA. Died 1846 in Jackson Twp, Mahoning, Ohio. Wife predeceased him.

Hi,  I am searching for information on the Brewster Family of Trumbull Co., OH.  I believe the family was living in Bristolville around 1918 and may have "adopted" a boy by the name of Richard Kerschner.  Any help would be appreciated on these families.

My family comes from the villages around Wisbech in England, in the counties of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Huntingdonshire: see my surname list at

Some of my West family (and connected families) left the Fens and eventually settled in Perry, Lake County, Ohio.

I'm trying to sort out the Foulks/Folks/Fulks families in Trumbull and Mahoning Counties in the mid 1800s - specifically trying to find the parents of Henry Foulk who married Betsy Bird. He moved from PA to OH and settled around Southington/Youngstown.
