Firelands Museum

The Firelands Historical Society, Norwalk, Ohio, published the Firelands Pioneer from 1858 - 1937. The early issues hold a valuable source of early history about the Firelands area and its early inhabitants. Some of these early issues are still available at a very nominal cost. The years available and condition of the books vary. If interested, send for a list of available copies and price list. The index for the early Firelands Pioneer issues 1858 - 1937, and the index for the obituaries which were listed in the 1857 -1909 issues are available.

Since 1980 the Firelands Historical Society has been publishing a third series of the Firelands Pioneer. They have included bible records, family information, and other records are a valuable source of information genealogist. The following is a listing of some of the articles that have been published. There are many more interesting articles not listed here. Some of the information was obtained from artifacts owned by the Historical Society and others were submitted by members.

If you should find your family listed in any of the publications, the books can be viewed at area libraries or purchased from the Society. We will NOT copy articles from the books as they are still available for purchase.
