Online Resources for Tracing Cincinnati-Area Ancestors

By Diane Haddad

Do you have ancestors from the Greater Cincinnati area? So do some of us at Family Tree Magazine. Those who attend this week’s National Genealogical Society Conference can visit our booth (#432) to swap ancestor resources, but if you can’t get here, these are some of our favorite local genealogy resources you can access from home:

  • Northern Kentucky Genealogy Index
    This library just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati lets you search names in Northern Kentucky records including cemetery, church, city directory, court and more.

Subscription site has Ohio death records and Kentucky birth, marriage and death records; and the free has Ohio deaths, Kentucky probate records (unindexed) and Kentucky vital records indexes.

Check the May/June 2012 issue of Family Tree Magazine for our Cincinnati City Guide, which has even more resources and tips for helping you find ancestors in the Queen City.
