Ohio Genealogy is being developed as a genealogical and historical resource for your personal use. While the original thought was to provide this website as a resource for finding genealogy and historical data concerning Ohio on the web, we have begun adding specific data to this site, or to our sister site Access Genealogy for your personal use.

In an attempt to further expand our offerings and refine your search, we have begun the creation of county websites. Our first is for Athens County, as we found the available online information to be lacking for this area of the state. You will find the link below. Enjoy!

The “Search Ohio Genealogy” search on the right side will search all of the Ohio Genealogy website, but will not search the data linked to from our offsite data pages.
