Library Inventory List
Is there someone in your family
interested in genealogy and your research collection that has taken you
years of work and time to acquire? If no one in your family is
interested, make sure your records, documents and photos are not
stored away and forgotten or even worse, destroyed or tossed away when
you leave this world. Be sure to include a written provision in
your will instructing your family what they should do with your
collection. Consider donating it to an area library, genealogical
society, or historical society where the collection will be made
available for years to come to others who may be searching for their
common family roots and area history.

About the Fulton County Genealogical
Founded in 1978, the Fulton County
Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society’s first meeting involved
about 20 people. Meetings were held alternately between the Swanton
Public Library and the Senior Citizen Center and YMCA in Wauseon,
Ohio. Annual dues were $5. In 1980, the chapter received its charter
from the Ohio Genealogical Society.
housed at the Swanton Public Library in Swanton, Ohio, then moved to the Fulton
County Historical Society for several years, the chapter’s collection of over
1,300 books and over 200 rolls of microfilm is now located at the Evergreen
Public Library, 253 Maple Street, Metamora, Ohio. The filmed records include
newspapers for towns in the county through 1910; birth and death records
beginning in 1867; marriage records from 1864 (although the county was formed in
1850, a fire in July 1864 destroyed many early records). The library holdings
include family histories, county histories, obituaries, tombstone inscription
books, as well as a wide variety of other Ohio county records. Research help at
the library is available with advance notice by volunteer members.
first president of our society, Diane Gagel, is currently past president of OGS.
Founding member, Jana Broglin, CG, having held many offices over the years in
our chapter, is a past trustee of OGS. Other first officers were: Marilyn
Clay, vice president; Shirley Campbell, recording secretary; Joan Westfall,
corresponding secretary; Marietta Buckenmeyer, registrar; Merril Bernath,
treasurer; Ruth Baird, publications committee chair; Loretta Mann, newsletter
typist. Also, in recent years, Susan Zacharias was our newsletter editor for
several years before becoming an award winning OGN editor.
first publication was a reprint of the 1858 Wall Map of Fulton County, printed
as twelve township maps showing landowners names; 1888 Atlas of Fulton county;
1903 Atlas of Fulton County; and all of the material on Fulton County in the
1875 Historical Atlas of the World and 496 personal histories. Our society
prepared an index for each of these rare items. Upcoming projects for 2009
include publication of early birth records starting in 1864; updating our
cemetery books; and putting together obituary clipping booklets.
