This web site is a place for posting and accessing 
records that people might otherwise be unable to 
access.  If the information is in the public domain, 
it can be posted here (e.g., newspaper articles 
from the early 1800s).  If the information is available 
from a current publication, you will still have to visit 
a library or purchase the publication to access it 
(e.g., Listings of marriage records available from 
the Gallia County Genealogical Society).   If you 
have anything you would like to contribute AND 
you know the source of your information (e.g., 
Publication data or type of public record), please
