We are in the process of redeveloping the online archives of the 64th Ohio Infantry into a complete user based network in an endeavor
to collect and archive any and all information and documents pertaining to this civil war regiment.
The site gives users the ability to upload images and documents, submit transcriptions and articles, communicate through forums, contribute to the gravesite directory, establish a user profile with features such as web blogs, private messaging, article/upload credits, personal image galleries, networking an more. All of these activities and more can be performed from any web browser anywhere. It is not just site but a community and an effort to bring private collectors and historians together through a community similar to the modern day myspace.com's. Not only can this be useful for classroom based projects but a complete user based archive will hopefully uncover more items that otherwise would have been undiscovered.
If you have any information pertaining to this regiment we would love to see you join the community.

The Wilmot Cemetery Association is pelased to announce the publication of Burial Records and Information for Greenlawn Cemetery, Wilmot, Stark County, Ohio. The book contains information on the 1,800+ individuals who are buried in the cemetery. Original burial records have been supplemented to include an individual's parents and spouse, if applicable.
Greenlawn Cemetery was created in 1887. Following its creation, many pioneer families in the area elected to move family members who had been previously buried at the Old Wilmot Cemetery, Weimer Hill Cemetery, Beidler Cemetery or on family farms to the “new” cemetery. The aforementioned includes members of the Agler, Bash, Freed, Lenz, Putman, Reed, Weimer and Wyandt families. Through the years, the cemetery has served not only the residents of Wilmot but those who reside in Sugarcreek Township, Stark County; Paint Township, Holmes County, Paint Township, Wayne County and Wayne Township, Tuscarawas County. Thus it would be a valuable resource to anyone who is researching their family tree and who had ancestors in the area.
