Ohio Research Information with more to come.

I started Ohio Research setting at the FHC Library in Mission Valley, looking at the items available there for members and community to garner knowledge from.

 There is an enormous amount of information there for Ohio.  This mostly covers what was available in the card catalog for books. No I did not do your homework.  : >)




Ohio Research is much like most of our states. 
It is not a Commonwealth.
Most of their set up and rules follows the basics set by previous states.

They do not have a Prothonotary Office as Pennsylvania does. Those records stand alone.

The Prothonotary is the Chief Clerk and Recordkeeper for all filings related to Civil Cases. The Office is located in the County Courthouse.

There are many great resources for this state. I am a member of the OGS. Ohio Genealogical Society. They are very helpful, courteous and generous with their assistance. 

Ohio has 88 Counties, if I counted correctly. 

Our LDS Library in Mission Valley has some very interesting books to help Ohioans find their families.8
Having gone through the card catalogue I found approximately 200 books on file for you to look at and gain information.





Starting with this one.

Ohio archives. County by county in Ohio genealogy   PETA 977.1. A3k


Cards on file

6 Archives, 1Atlas, 12 Biography, 1 Cemetery rec,  11 Census, 3 Vital Rec, 4 Church Records, 2 Court Rec,

Last card was this one which is for Westmoreland Co. PA. 

Ohio vital records 974.881 V2fiv.1 Westmoreland  Co   M & D. 1818- 1865.   Iscrupe, W & Della R Fischer

The state of Ohio has a total of 88 counties. Adams County was the first county established in the state. It was established on July 10th, 1797.

A great site for knowledge.  

There is so much data on this and usgenweb.org for MD that you will spend a month digging for data.

 look for Maryland information
by county or names

There are many other sites up with data.   These are sites I use the most.

Thank you to all the people that helped create these great resources for us all to use.

Maryland Research and some Holiday Memory Makers

Welcome to the Bonita-Sunnyside Library on Saturday this weekend. 12 to 3 pm

 We will share data on Maryland Research.  Such a great state to dig into for information and knowledge of our early countries development and our families stretching their legs and moving about.

 Having a few ancestors from this great state, it was a thrill to fly over the Potomoc River and see the great Chesapeake Bay for myself. No, I could not see the bottom of the bay like they did in the 1600 and 1700's.

Litterally,  I was seeing houses, buildings, factories, then trees, bushes, roads and a sea of humanity.
Ah, what an airport with a great attitude while there.  Adopted son met me with his wife and we shared fresh CrabCakes and coleslaw.  It was great to see them.

Maryland is still a state of a lot of wood, growing from the ground creating a great scene of color, hoping that never goes away.  Those trees had a lot to do with the settling of areas in Maryland.

They have some interesting rivers that wander around the country side.  It is a state of many things if you study it's past.

We will talk of some places to look some url's to share, some books to order or read and depending on how many of your kin were from there as to how much you will need to know about the boundary states that shared with Maryland.  Those lines were not set in cement.

Did you know that Maryland claimed up into Pennsylvania more than 40 miles and that Pennsylvania claimed down into Maryland more than 30 miles?

Come join the fun and also learn how to get the family involved in Christmas in a new way,
which is truly an old way reborn.

Some Hints and Tips and Places to Play.

Today sharing information, that has been accumulating on my desktop.  Things I hope may help you
in your researching and learning.

Did you know My Heritage and 23 and Me has joined forces for more assistance in knowledge?
http://blog.myheritage.com/2014/10/myheritage-announces-collaboration-with-23andme/

Want more information about Kentucky?  Do not forget to use rootsweb.org for queries, surnames and county information. It is Free.  Remember to give Familysearch.org a try also.  Some say Wiki  is good.
I am still battling the good and the bad and the sorta in the middle agenda on them.

But when you get to looking with a ferocious intensity you may want to spend a small amount and try this site. http://blog.myheritage.com/2014/10/myheritage-announces-collaboration-with-23andme/

If your looking  for a fairly easy computer program for you research you may want to try
My Heritage. I have used it for four years with major success. It does have a fee but it is stored in the cloud.  ( Off your own computer and can not be lost if system crashes). It has shaking leaves like Ancestry.
This months newsletter talks of various Halloween themed activities.  Death Collections, Cemeteries
being digitized, and Death Records. Also adds information on Virtual Cemetery and a Halloween Themed webinar. http://www.myheritage.com/email/14102300ea39b20cae269f322fb300c1

If you are looking for more fun, then join InDepth for their many talks, topics and activities.

Virginia Revolutionary "Publick" Claimsby Janice Luck Abercrombie and Richard Slatten
As Continental forces and Virginia militia units were engaged in winning independence, American quartermasters and provisioners struggled to provide these units with all the necessities of life, from meals and guns to meat, fodder for horses, the horses themselves, firewood, and every other type of material. Much of this was requisitioned from the civilian population and certificates were issued payable in either continental or state funds, depending on the units supplied, upon presentation to court authorities. Thousands of these certificates issued to Virginians were duly entered by the courts, and they provide a fascinating insight into the period of the Revolution. These "Publick" Claims booklets contain interesting and useful information about the contributions of ordinary people to the Revolutionary War. They provide some details of people's service in the militia or as guards for prisoners of war; they indicate where some bodies of troops were at particular times; and they identify providers of horses, wagons, cattle, grain, or other supplies. Much of the information in these booklets cannot be found anywhere else, which makes the surviving records particularly valuable. Also remarkable is the fact that records survived from virtually every county in the state at that time with the exception of the newly formed Kentucky counties. This makes the collection even more valuable in covering areas which heretofore in this time period have suffered from a lack of personal data.
