Morrow County Courthouse
Important info: Please do NOT send requests for research, birth/death/marriage certificates, etc. to the Courthouse or to the Board of Health. All requests received by mail, fax, or e-mail are forwarded to the Genealogical Society for handling - which, obviously, slows down the response time. Please send your requests directly to the Genealogical Society: MCGS, P. O. Box 401, Mount Gilead, OH 43338.
The Courthouse is located on the North side of East High Street, one block East of the Victory Shaft. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

They are katty-corner across the street from the Genealogy Annex of the Library. The Board of Health (Health Dept.), is in the Courthouse, second floor.
