We need volunteers
If you have any resources (references, books, lists, histories, etc.) pertaining to Butler County genealogy that you wish to share, PLEASE let us know what you have, what you are willing to do, and the *best* method to contact you (email, phone, fax, mail) with addresses, etc.
Books, archives, data and references, with search capabilities online, will partially replace human volunteers below who do lookups.
Butler Co. Genealogy Society will search courthouse, library, etc.
