I just saw your comment from September. You can see that I rarely go to this site. I really haven't figured out how to use the program! How did all of the other people find you, and are they all relatives? I don't know where to begin. Do you think you receive more information from this web site than you do on ancestry.com? Dorothy
When coming to Columbus you might want to visit the Columbus Metropolitan Library (www.columbuslibrary.org/genealogy). We have a significant genealogy collection for Ohio and many other states. We now have the genealogy collections formerly at the State Library of Ohio, Palatines to America Society, and the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society. Currently our hours are Monday-Thursday 9-9, Fri-Sat 9-6, Sunday's 1-5. After September 6th they'll be Mon-Thur 10-8, Fri-Sat 10-4 and Sunday 1-5. The other place to do research is the Ohio Historical Society (http://www.ohiohistory.org/resource/archlib). Currently, their hours are Thursdays 1-9, Fri-Sat 9-5. I think you mentioned Fairfield county as a place where some of your ancestors lived. If so, the Fairfield County Chapter of OGS has a wonderful library as well (http://www.fairfieldgenealogy.org/library/library.html). If you have time to eat during your research trip you might try some of the following places. Schmidts (http://www.schmidthaus.com/) is a German restaurant in German Village which is a nice place to walk around and see well preserved homes built by Columbus' German immigrant population. Schiller Park is a few blocks from Schmidts if you need to walk off some of the good German food. Don't leave Schmidt's without trying their creampuffs. For microbreweries check out this site Ohio Brewpubs and MIcrobreweries (http://www.beer100.com/brewpubs_o_to_z/ohio.htm). Barleys Brewing and Elevator Brewing are both good. Pubcrawler lists a few places in Columbus as well (http://www.pubcrawler.com/Template/searchwc.cfm/flat/zipcode=43201/distance=25/title=Columbus,%20Ohio). Mac's Cafe on High street is good as well. They have Scottish food, burgers and more. If you have any questions let me know. I'm the genealogy subject specialist at Columbus Metropolitan Library. Russ
