Kenny Burck, Jeff Herbert, Jim Dempsey, and Jim Cissel
The FamilySearch project to scan
Hamilton County Recorder's Office records, begun in September 2013, was
completed on April 8, 2014. For a detailed record list, see "Hamilton
County Recorder’s Office Records to Be Added to FamilySearch" by Jim
Dempsey, in the December 2013 issue of The
Tracer. A significant amount of the images are already available at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2141016.
Land-related records now online are:
Many non-deed records will also
be online in the future. They can be seen on microfilm at the Recorder's Office
and at the Cincinnati Historical Library and Archives. For descriptions of
these records see articles by Jim Dempsey in The Tracer: "Hamilton County Recorder’s Office Early Indexes
and Records," September 2012 issue, and "Hamilton County Recorder’s
Office - Far More Than Deeds," November 2011 issue. These
records are indexed in the Sundries Indexes, volumes 1-8 (1794-1969), now online
at FamilySearch. The earliest index, Sundries volume 1 (1794-1889), is also on
our website at http://www.hcgsohio.org/cpage.php?pt=76
Note: Over the next few months, we hope to develop some instructions on how to efficiently make use of some of these incredible resources. Stay tuned.
