When: Tuesday, May 28, 2019, 7:00 pm
Where: Kolping Center, 10235 West Mill Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45231
Who:  Jeff Herbert, HCGS Treasurer

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Roman Catholic sacramental records have recently been released through Findmypast. Transcripts are currently available and record images will be posted in the future. 

On May 28th, Jeff Herbert will discuss effective use of these records for researching your Hamilton County ancestors.  Tips will include how to navigate through the records in Latin, the prevalence of ethnic parishes in the 19th Century, and strategies for using information contained in these records to overcome those difficult family research barriers.

St. Francis Xavier Church
Traditionally ethnic Irish Church
Old St. Mary Church

An example of a Hamilton County Irish family will demonstrate the use of all available resources to successfully trace the family back into their ancestral homeland in Ireland.

This event is free of charge and no registration is required. Beer, soft drinks and snacks will be available.

  1. Will this session be recorded? All of my recent ancestors were born and raised in Hamilton County. But I have never lived there, and I currently live in Georgia.

  2. We intend to record it and put it online once it is edited.
