Cuyahoga County Lineage Groups

The lineage society, Cuyahoga County Pioneers, was launched in 2004 for those who can prove descendency from an ancestor residing in Cuyahoga County before 31 December 1850.

In 2006, an additional program, Cuyahoga County Settlers, was launched for those who can prove descendency from an ancestor residing in Cuyahoga County before 31 December 1880.

2009 began a new level, called Cuyahoga County Centurions and is for family history enthusiasts who can prove they are descended from ancestors who were living in Cuyahoga County from 1 January 1881 up to 100 years prior to the current year.

The current listings of all three groups, Pioneers, Settlers, and Centurions are here!
