Ohio Books

bookFinding Your Family History in Northeast Ohio (Paperback) For anyone interested in finding their family roots in Northeast Ohio, this book combines practical how-to (and where-to) instructions with inspirational family history success stories.

Genealogy—family history research—is a fast-growing hobby. But it can be difficult to start. Official records are scattered in so many places, and each archive seems to have its own way of doing things. Where to begin?

Vicki Blum Vigil, author of Cleveland Cemeteries and an experienced researcher, knows her way around the most useful facilities (archives, libraries, churches, cemeteries, courts, and more) in this region. Her new book helps newcomers to genealogy (or to Northeast Ohio) figure out which places to look in and how best to use them.

She also shares some personal success stories of fellow Clevelanders who have discovered really interesting things about their ancestors—they make for great how-to examples and fun reading, too!

by Vicki Blum Vigil is an amateur genealogist and historian who enjoys discovering how the past affects the present. Through her books, seminars, and tours, she also enjoys showing others how to make discoveries of their own. A home and school counselor for the Euclid City Schools, she lives in Highland Heights, Ohio. She is also the author of Cleveland Cemeteries.

bookA People Set Apart: The Scotch-Irish in Eastern Ohio (Hardcover) by Lorle, Ph.D. Porter

See the Civil War through the eyes of the men who served. The Scotch-Irish Settlers of Eastern Ohio, with their fierce clannishness and strong ties to Presbyterianism, had definite attitudes about slavery and the Civil War. This is their story...from the Forks of the Yough to the "killing fields" of Georgia, as they followed "the Covenent of Christ" into the horrors of war. Much of the material is from private journals, letters, photographs, and private research, plus a rare, previously unpublished underground railroad diary. This definitive chronicle contains over 450 photographs, illustrations, and battle site drawings, 968 pages, a detailed and cross-referenced topical index, a surname of 3,000 individuals to aid genealogy researchers, soldier lists and methodology for dozens of units, and an extensive bibliography. The book is beautifully bound with foil-stamped cloth cover and striking full-color dust jacket.
