Good news for Ohio researchers!

Twentieth-century researchers will be especially pleased to learn that the Ohio History Connection now has an index on line for Ohio death certificates 1954-1963. To see the originals -- what we really need -- we must either travel to 800 E. 17th Avenue in Columbus (a great place to research the many materials still confined to paper or microfilm), or order them from the Ohio History Store.

The death certificate index is part of the Select Ohio Public Records Index, which includes some material now on FamilySearch, and some you may not have thought to look at, such as records of the Boys' and Girls' "industrial schools" 1858-1944.
