United States > Ohio > Ohio Societies

Contents

Societies

There are many societies which may help family historians. Genealogical, historical, lineage, veterans, and ethnic societies are especially helpful because of the records and resources they collect, transcribe, and publish. Often their records contain birth, marriage, death, and biographical information. See "Societies". Archives and Libraries are carefully contributed to and maintained by various Societies.

Genealogical and historical societies often maintain a genealogical file for families in the area and may sponsor publications, some of which are cited in the "Genealogy" section of this outline. Many counties have their own Genealogical Societies.

One important society in Ohio is the Ohio Genealogical Society (see the "Archives and Libraries" page). The Ohio Genealogical Society has a number of Chapters throughout the state. Many Chapters actively extract and index original records. OGS Chapters are independent societies; researchers should contact them for publications and other resources for their respective counties.

Genealogical Societies

Historical Societies

Lineage Societies

A Lineage society is an organization whose members have shown proof of their descent from a qualifying ancestor such as a colonist or soldier. There are early settlers, ethnic, religious, and war societies. The Hereditary Society Blue Book[1] is the annual Who's Who or Social Register of Hereditary, Lineage, and Patriotic societies. It also contains information on lineage societies, including the insignia, the membership requirements, and the national address of each organization. Books, articles, and publications that can be very helpful in genealogical research are kept by these societies. The applications for membership in these societies are preserved, and many are on microfilm at the Family History Library. See the Register of U. S. Lineage Societies (mentioned in the "Societies"), for lists of microfilmed records, and publications. Hundreds of organizations are in the United States, here are some with Ohio ties:


Family History Library Helps

  • See the "Author/Title Search" of the Family History Library Catalog for many sources published by the Ohio Genealogical Society. There are, for example, birth, marriage, death and cemetery records; censuses (state and federal); newspaper obituaries; probates; city directories; adoption records; county assessors’ books; indexes to scrapbooks; and church records.
  • See also the "Archives and Libraries" section of this outline for other organizations with family history sources.
  • Some societies generate unpublished indexes of local records, genealogies, cemetery transcriptions and other records. Some may publish lists of members, yearbooks, ancestor lists, or surname indexes which may be listed in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under:
