GALLIA COUNTY OHIO HISTORY SOURCES


This page lists several sources of information about this county's history. This particular page is not intended as a source of genealogical records although some of the books may contain information about some people in the county. It is most probably not a complete list. If anyone knows of additional sources that contain significant historical information (not just a passing mention of the county), please let me know and I will add it to the page. Also let me know where a copy of the source can be found for viewing or purchase.
