A Guide to Genealogical Resources in Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Ohio, 6th Edition provides detailed research guidance including reproductions of numerous period maps, lists of publications and microfilms, a gazetteer, a list of street name changes, addresses and holdings of many county libraries, archives and government offices, and more! The table of contents can be viewed on our website by clicking, http://hcgsohio.org/guidecontents.pdf.
Back issues of the The Tracer contain an amazing number of articles of benefit to Hamilton County researchers. The Hamilton County Genealogical Society (HCGS) website has both a topical index (1979-2008), http://www.hcgsohio.org/tracerarticleindex.pdf and also a name index (1979-2005), http://www.hcgsohio.org/tracernames.shtml. These sources can be used in conjunction with the text search capabilities available on the CD or DVD to locate all the relevant articles that contain your ancestor or topic of interest.
Both of the publications can be purchased using the Publications Order Form (http://www.hcgsohio.org/publicationsorderform.pdf). The HCGS is experimenting with taking orders using credit cards. As part of our beta-test, these publications can now be purchased online.
