Genealogy Wise

The Genealogy & Family History Social Network

This site has a lot of great things on it. If you go to research and homework, then Research database they have a genealogy link. The yellow paint mark for Digital images has City Directories. Newsdex has newspaper info. If you find something you want a copy of or want a death notice and you know the Name and death date you can get a copy from them.

I have e-mailed them and had copies sent to my home for a fee of under fifty cent a page and i have also e-mailed them and asked them to e-mail in info to me. There was no charge for the info that was e-mailed to me. And you do not have to have a Cincinnati Library card to use this.

Cincinnati City Directories‏

The Cincinnati Public Library has a fabulous resource called the
virtual library, where anyone can download books, music, maps, etc.
They have the images of Cincinnati city directories for most years
between 1819 and 1894 online, you can download them as a PDF file.

Here is the link to the Virtual Library page:

And then there is this site, there are other states on this one!
There are a bunch of Cincinnati directories, as well as other places, up on the Directory page:

You can confine your search to the Cincinnati books using the SEARCH
SELECTOR in the Left Pane. Or you can browse one book at a time by clicking
on that book's link. When it loads, you will find links to all of the pages
in the Left Pane. As you click on the link for a page, it loads in the
Center Pane. The Center Pane also includes links to step forward and
backward one page at a time.

Don't be too trusting of the search index. It's pretty good but not

To view a list of material available click on "Browse Virtual

Not all of these are searchable but there is good location info for most of them. These are all cemeteries listed with the Hamilton County Auditor's office, and they collect taxes so they should know where they all are;~)

Thank you very much for telling me how it works - I've been to their page but have never found clear instructions so was unsure whether requests were OK, how much they charged if so, etc. Do you typically pay in advance?
If you are talking about the Cincinnati and Hamilton Co. Library they will send a bill with what they send you in the mail. It has been two or three years since I got anything in the mail but it was only a quarter a page, the bill was for fifty cents. I can't make myself write a check for fifty cents so I sent them two dollars I think.
