A few marriages were re-recorded but again not all were. Ohio did not issue birth or death certificates until 20 December 1903.

    The best way to send information and names to be researched is by email, or postal mail.
    If sent by email, research will not begin until we receive your money order or check.

    Please indicate the extent of your own research so LCGS work will not be duplicated.
