A Hierarchy of Research Archives in Ohio with Kelli Bergheimer

February 23rd, 2018 by National Genealogical Society Blog Editor

LECTURE TITLE: Hierarchy of Research Archives in Ohio
TIME & DATE: Wednesday, May 2, 11 am

Do you have Ohio ancestors? (Editor: Yes, yes, oh yes…) Learn about the hierarchy and collections of genealogical libraries, archives, and repositories in Ohio. Find hidden gems to visit in person or search online from tiny town libraries to the wonderful regional and state resources.

Regardless of where your family settled in Ohio, or even if they were just passing through, they may have left records in places you expected…and places you didn’t. This lecture may provide you with research ideas for those brick-wall ancestors whose records you’ve exhausted in their home locale.

Kelli is also available for free 45 minute one-on-one chats at the conference on three topics—Ohio Archives, genealogical organization, and autosomal DNA/GedMatch help sessions. Contact her at [email protected] to schedule a time!
