Williams County Ohio!

Pamela Pattison Lash, a new blogger but experienced and highly focused genealogist, has lived and worked in the far northwest corner of Ohio for a good long time. Her blog, "Williams County, Ohio Genealogy" is subtitled "helpful family history" and is just that.

It includes biographies of Williams County residents and more recently abstracts of early divorce cases. In case you don't know, Williams County (county seat Bryan) borders on Hillsdale County, Michigan, and Steuben County, Indiana, so there is plenty of tri-state interaction. The northwest was the last part of Ohio to be settled by European-Americans. If you ever drive what used to be called "The Main Street of the Midwest," AKA I-80/90, AKA the Ohio Turnpike in Ohio and "the toll road" in Indiana, you have stopped in Williams County at least long enough to pay the toll.

This blog is a must-see for anyone working in this area, and inspiration for anyone who isn't, and (even after just a couple of months) is quickly becoming also a bookmarkable resource.
