|Elaine Kuhn introduces HCGS Members to new History and Genealogy Department|
Last Saturday HCGS members had the opportunity to hear Elaine Kuhn of the Kenton County Library speak to us about "Hamilton County's Neighbors: Researching in the Surrounding Counties." Those of us involved in Hamilton County research have often found it necessary to track our elusive ancestors in nearby counties. It was not uncommon for early residents of Clermont County to relocate to Hamilton or Cincinnati Germans to move back and forth across the river to Kenton and Campbell Counties.
Elaine's talk made us aware of gems that may not have been obvious to those unfamiliar with the resources of surrounding counties. She even included a "not to be missed" suggestion of places to visit after completing your research. With Elaine's permission, I am including her list of libraries and societies for the seven counties that surround Hamilton and their links.
