Defiance County OHGenWeb


October 29, 2014

Welcome to the Defiance County GenWeb page. I am the new volunteer county coordinator, Kathy Gies.

Please email me with submissions, corrections, questions, etc.
I do not live locally in Defiance County so I cannot do volunteer research there. This site will be refreshed with a new look. If you are here and find broken links please call them to my attention.


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

The site search engine is currently out of order and will be replaced soon. Until then you are welcome to browse this site.

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.
