We are very happy to assist you with your genealogy research. Free genealogical help is offered to the public as well as our members at our meetings and help sessions. Click on the Meetings/Help Sessions link to see our scheduled meetings.
Our volunteers are also able to help you by either sending an email with your questions at or by mailing written questions to Cuyahoga West Chapter, PO Box 45607, Westlake, Ohio 44145-0607.


 A Stamped, Self-addressed envelope must be provided for response to any request. Answering simple questions or providing advice on local sources will be done at no cost. A Quick Search for fee will be performed for a general inquiry which could include census indexes, death notices, specific Cleveland Plain Dealer or Cleveland Press newspaper issues on microfilm, Cleveland city directories, Crisfield Johnson 1879 Cuyahoga County history, Ohio Surname Index, and/or the LDS International Genealogical Index. The fee for this service is currently $10.00 per hour plus expenses; non-local members receive their first hour free. Specific directed research beyond this Quick Search is often not possible unless a member has the time to do so-- we are all volunteers with limited time--not a business; please inquire. A $10.00 deposit will then be requested. A list of local researchers who often do research that we cannot undertake will be provided in these cases.

All checks should be made out to Cuyahoga West Chapter, OGS. We're glad to help if we can!
