Ohio Genealogy Records and Ohio Ancestry

Ohio began recording births, marriages, and deaths in 1867 on the county level. It wasn't until November 1908 that the State of Ohio required births, marriages, and deaths to be recorded at the state level, too. From 1867 to November 1908, you will need to write to the county in Ohio that the vital event occurred in order to get a copy of the original record. Our research team has ready access to death certificates from November 1908 to 1944 and we can make the copies for you. For copies of birth certificates from 1908 and death certificates from 1945 to present-day, please write to the State of Ohio.

Some of our staff members have Ohio ancestry and would love to help you with your Ohio genealogy. If you're stuck with a family in Ohio, please feel free to contact us and ask for a free estimate for a solution.

Client Testimonials

I received the report today. It is fantastic and so well put together. I can't wait to show my children. I never knew my great grandfather, Sidney had been stabbed or that he died in a Nursing Home. What a great job! - Jane
