Notice, December 2010

Welcome to the Defiance County GenWeb page. I am the new volunteer county coordinator, Brandy Dowlin. My ancestors lived in Defiance County in the 1800s. I have often visited this page hoping to find it adopted and updated with new content, and now I get to do the task myself!

In the near future, I will be contacting those of you who are listed on the site as volunteers to verify if the email address is still active as well as to find out if you are still available. Please feel free to contact me with your update if you are on the list or would like to be added.

The new email address for submissions, corrections, questions, etc is:

Defiance County OHGenWeb



I suggest also visiting the Williams County OHGenWeb site if you are looking for ancestors from Defiance County. DefianceCounty was originally part of Williams County and they are very much intertwined.

About the OHGenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky where collected databases would be stored. In addition, these databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

OHGenWeb is an extention of that premise.

Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of data and generally oversee the contents of the web site for each county within the state. Contact the volunteer host cited on the county site if you have a desire to add your information to the county site's data.
