Clermont County Genealogical Society


In 1856 an Ohio law was enacted, directing that everyone involved in births or deaths -- clergymen, doctors, midwives, etc., should keep a complete record of all births and deaths, and a yearly report of this information should be made to the assessor. Compliance with the law varied: some counties, including Clermont, have a usable record of births and deaths for the first two years only, 1856 and 1857.
In 1867 the above law was repealed and a new law enacted changing the reporting period to quarterly and directing that the Probate Judge receive and record the reports. Since the 1867 law, records of births and deaths are more complete. The original 1856-1857 birth and death records for Clermont County are in the records of the Probate court. The following are taken from those records. Spelling is transcribed as found in the records.
