The September Tracer Now Online

The Tracer is one my favorite publications. Filled with research guidance and the latest upcoming events, I eagerly read each new issue from cover-to-cover to find the nugget that might lead to new discoveries about my ancestors. “The Foreign Population in Cincinnati, 1912” is a fascinating reprinting of a pamphlet published in 1912, “Report on the Survey of the Foreign Population in Cincinnati.” The reprint is one of many great articles in the September issue, now available to members online. Headlines include:
