More Resources for Cincinnati Researchers
Posted by Diane

We got a note from our hometown Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, which already has one of the best public library genealogy collections in the country, about its recently expanded Genealogy and Local History Department and its new online goodies.

The new department consolidates materials previously spread throughout the library, making room in public areas for 7,000 more books and 8,000 reels of high-demand microfilm. Its Cincinnati Room lets patrons access historical materials such as local newspapers and manuscript collections.

Librarians also will schedule one-on-one consultations to help direct patrons’ research. Visit the department’s Web site to take a video tour and link to research databases. Check out the librarians’ list of favorite online resources for Cincinnati-area research, too.

Digitized historical materials also have made it onto PLCHC’s Virtual Library. Those include several 19th-cenury Cincinnati city directories and volumes such as the 1868 The Black Brigade of Cincinnati: Being a Report of its Labors and a Muster-Roll of its Members, the 1838 Report of the First Anniversary of the Ohio Anti-Slavery Society, and the 1852 Annual Announcement of Lectures of the Miami Medical College of Cincinnati. Click on a book cover to download the file as a PDF.



One of the John Seegers listed in this 1866 city directory may or may not be my ancestor; I'll have to go home and check.

I am researching my Fair/Blickenstaff family history and wondered if you know of some resources that would list names of people who traveled down the Ohio River on flatboats and may have stopped in Cincinnati and started their trek north to Miami county in and around 1803? Please give me a point of contact or a website to research... Thanks, Jo Ellen

Hello,
There's no collective source we know of listing migrants on inland waterways (see the post at http://www.familytreemagazine.com/nowwhat/Whatever+Floats+Your+Riverboat.aspx).

But you'll have plenty of other resources for tracing early Ohio ancestors, such as land records and quadrennial enumerations of men over 21. Start with the Ohio Historical Society (www.ohiohistory.org) and Ohio Genealogical Society (www.ogs.org) sites. Federal census records don't start until 1820 for most of Ohio.

And definitely keep an eye out for our Ohio State Research Guide, which will be in the July 2008 issue of Family Tree Magazine.
