Ohio libraryfest

Private libraries are not a perfect substitute for public ones, but it is wonderful to see the Ohio Genealogical Society opening its brand-new Samuel D. Isaly Library this weekend (south of Mansfield off I-79 in Richland County).

For those of us who couldn't make the grand opening, the library blog has pictures. But being there will be the best! Here's the part of the web site to help you prepare. And there's also a list of "selected treasures," including Civil War muster-in rolls, Northern Ohio district naturalizations 1855-1967, Laws of Ohio, Ohio tax records 1801-1814, Church Records Survey, and "wolf scalps."
