Genealogy

 

Located on the upper level, the Genealogy Department has the same hours as the rest of the Main Library. Our trained staff members are always available to assist you. In addition, if you are unable to visit in person, you may also write or e-mail us by using our convenient online request forms.

Our local sources include various Stark County Courthouse records, local histories, newspapers, census, and much more. We also collect on the  entire state of Ohio, as well as, selected records for the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusettes, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.  If you have any questions or would like to know more about specific sources, please feel free to contact us.
