Seeking Help!

September 2021 - New Projects!

  • Reconstruction of the 1890 Census for Warren County, Ohio

    • Wouldn't this be a great resource to have?  An article in the September / October 2021 issue of Family Tree Magazine has prompted a renewed interest in this project.  The Southern California Genealogical Society is also undertaking this and they have some great suggestions.  We are currently making a list of record resources to check for 1890 information on residents of Warren County and hope to begin work on this soon.  This is a project that volunteers could potentially help with from home.  Linda Eckert is coordinating volunteers for this project.

  • House Histories

    • We have had several requests for house histories and Linda Eckert is creating a special team of volunteers to assist with these inquiries.  If you have an interest in helping with this research, please contact us.  This could eventually lead to a book for publication!​​
