Welcome to Cuyahoga County, Ohio. My name is Denise Wells and I am the coordinator for this site. My goal is to bring to you information that is not available on other Cuyahoga County websites. I hope you enjoy the materials I will be providing.
If you have any Cuyahoga information that you would like to submit for searchers of this site, please feel free to contact me. Cuyahoga Coordinator

Cuyahoga County is situated in the north east quadrant of Ohio. Neighboring counties include: Lake, to the northeast; Geauga County, to the east; Summit, to the southeast; Portgage, to the southeast corner; Medina, to the southwest; and Lorain, to the west. Cuyahoga County's northern border lies along Lake Erie.
The county is named after the Native American word Cuyahoga (which is possibly Algonguian), which means "crooked river." The County Seat of Cuyahoga is Cleveland.
 I need your help! It is my goal to add more data to this site to help those researching their Cuyahoga roots. If you have family histories, obituaries, birth, marriage and death records, news stories or any other Cuyahoga County info, please contact me at
