Ohio Vital Records #1, 1790s-1870s

Here you’ll find more than 93,000 individuals referenced. The majority of the materials cover the years 1800 to 1850 and represent 76 of Ohio’s 88 counties. What you can learn about each listed individual varies according to the original record, but this data offers a wide variety of important genealogical source materials.

What you can learn about each listed individual varies, depending on the article. Invariably, the information will help you locate a particular individual at a specific place and point in time. Learning a location, and date from these records may help you find your ancestor in other genealogical records not necessarily included in this collection. In some cases, particularly when your ancestor’s name appears in a marriage record, will, or deed, you will also be able to establish family relationships. Also note that if you do find one of your ancestors among these records, it is likely that you will find a connection to a family line from the thirteen original colonies. This is because the Ohio area was one of the first to be settled north of the Mason-Dixon line and west of the thirteen original colonies.
