Updates from the Hayes Public Library

These two items appeared in the Hayes website this week. Thought it would be of interest for those doing Sandusky county research and be interested in the Black Swamp.


Thanks to the Sidney Frohman Foundation, a four-year run (1933 - 1937) of the only surviving copies of the Sandusky Daily News has been preserved on microfilm. Volunteers will soon enter obituary data from these issues into the Hayes Obituary Index. A second set of the film was donated to the Sandusky Public Library in Sandusky, Ohio. We hope that in 2008, we can film the final four-year run (1937 - 1941)."


If you would like to learn more about Northwest Ohio's Great Black Swamp, you will enjoy Black Swamp Memories, a digital northwest ohio's great black swamp, courtesy of wikipediascrapbook filled with information and images of families and communties of the region known as the Black Swamp. The site is a service of the Wood County District Public Library in partnership with the BGSU Center for Archival Collections, Hancock Historical Museum, Northwest Regional Library System (Norweld), Wood County Genealogical Society, Wood County Historical Center and Museum. The scrapbook was created with funding from a federal grant award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Have a great Saturday. Send me those Brickwalls!!!
