Hamilton County, Ohio Birth Records 1874-1875. Lois E. Hughes. Prior to 1865, births were not registered in Hamilton County, and birth certificates were not issued until 1908. This informative book provides birth records of June 1874 through 1875. The information was copied from Hamilton County, Ohio, births registers received from probate court. Due to their fragile conditions, the original registers will not be available to the public, and photo copies cannot be made from them. Department staff will check the registers if a question arises. All of the pertinent information in the birth register is recorded here. Researchers should keep in mind that most of these names have been spelled phonetically. Accents and pronunciation changed the sounds of names (i.e. Voll/Woll, Weber/Veber, Jablonsky/Yablonsky, etc.) The births were carelessly recorded by using abbreviations, failing to cross t’s, dot the i’s, crossing the l’s, and even omitting vowels. Whenever accuracy of a record is questioned or indecipherable, a question mark has been included. (1993), 2011, 8½x11, paper, alphabetical, 2 vols., 9781556139154 101-H3915 - $57.00

June 2015 Arrivals

Historical Collections of the Mahoning Valley (Ohio). Mahoning Valley Historical Society Staff. This area in Mahoning and Trumbull counties was originally part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. Significant settlement began shortly after 1800. This work consists of two major parts: the first 120 pages being records of the pioneer reunions held in 1874 and 1875, while the balance of the work consists of histories of the early settlement of the towns and townships in these two counties. The records of the reunions consist mainly of historical essays on the early settlements, so the volume is replete with biographical tidbits on early residents which is now made more accessible by the addition of a new every-name index. 1990 9781556133367 101-M3336 - $41.00


Alsop's Maryland: A Character of the Province of Maryland. George Alsop. In 1658 George Alsop left England for Maryland, where he worked as an "indented" servant in Baltimore Co., under the government of Lord Baltimore. It seems highly probable that the lord proprietor and governor, both eager to attract laborers, encouraged Alsop to write this glowing account of the province. Alsop paints an extremely enticing picture of the bountiful natural resources of Mary-Land, followed by a discussion of the merits of "her well ordered Government," and her virtuous settlers. The benefits of apprenticeship and the necessity of servitude are discussed. Alsop's flattering words do not extend to his horror-filled chapter on the customs, manners and religion of the Susquehanock Indians.  This slender volume is enhanced by an introduction that offers a glimpse of the author's life and times, and concludes with a collection of letters written by the author.

Cedar Grove Cemetery Portsmouth, Virginia, Plot Book 1 and 2. Betty J. Matthews. The town of Portsmouth was established in 1752 on land owned by Colonel William Craford. Colonel Craford hired a surveyor, Gershom Nimmo, to divide the sixty-five acres of his plantation into a town to be called Portsmouth, which was named after the seacoast town in England. The town initially had no public place in which to bury the dead—only various church yards or private plots in gardens. In 1832, the legislature of the State of Virginia authorized the town trustee of Portsmouth to forbid the burial of the dead within the city limits. Thus, the first public cemetery established was Cedar Grove; it was purchased in 1833. The cost to own a grave site in 1833 was $8.00 for residents and $10.00 for nonresidents. The first keeper of the cemetery was the town sergeant who was paid $50.00 a year for his services. Cedar Grove Cemetery is located west of Effingham Street, which was outside the city limits in 1832. Plot book records contained in this book include information on the owner and specific location of the burial plot, date of burial, death date, age at death, and relatives of the deceased in some cases.
