Findlay Hancock Public Library

For those of us that are conducting research in Hancock county the primary resource for information here is located at the public library. The room to visit is the local history room located at the main library. The collection includes-
  • CDs
  • Cemetery Indexes
  • City Directories
  • High School Yearbooks
  • Family Histories
  • Local History
  • Microfilm/Microfiche
  • Newspaper Index (limited availability)
  • Newspapers-local (Mid-1800s to present)
  • Obituary Index (Hancock County)
  • Ohio Census
  • Passenger Lists (including Germans to America)
  • Vital Records: Birth (1908- Present), Death (1908- Present) and Will Indexes
So when researching Hancock county have a list of what you need to research and go.

I will be away from my computer for the next three days. Back posting on Tuesday.
