President's Message


Greetings to everyone,

Thanks for visiting our website.  I hope that you find information that is helpful in your search.

If you need additional information, our group does process research requests.  We charge $10 per request.  A request is for one individual and one item.  So two items for one person, or one item for two people, would be $20.  Please note that we do charge for all searches including those that find no results.  Our researchers still have to do the work whether actual information is found or not.

Our society also has several publications available for sale to help aid you in your search.  Be sure to check out our list of publications.

Our society also houses a resource library at the Marion Historical Society which is manned on most Saturday afternoons.  If you are coming a long distance, please call ahead to verify that we found a volunteer to keep it open.  Our local library, Marion Public Library, also houses a room for genealogical research as well.

If you would like a query added to our newsletter, please write up a short article noting important information such as names, dates, and locations and of course how to contact you.  We would be glad to share your query.

Please consider signing up and becoming a member of our society.  We would welcome you and your membership, whether you live near or far.  Our society usually meets on the first Saturday morning of the month at 10am in the Marion Historical Society.  Be sure to check our actual calendar of events as that are some months we don’t meet, some where we meet elsewhere, and some where we meet on the 2nd Saturday.

In addition to general membership, we also have two lineage societies.   They are First Families of Marion County and Civil War Families of Marion Ohio.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 740-360-3977 or at
