Genealogical society reviews obits

DENNISON -- The Tuscarawas County Genealogy Society met recently with President Jon Baker presiding.

It was decided to purchase some books from the Ohio Genealogy Society and the Holmes County Society.

It was noted that Alan Diebel is working on indexing more obits for the online website and has the marriage index from 1880-1941 there also. They can be viewed at

The 2011 obit books for Tuscarawas and Stark County have been sent to the bindery and will be available at the library when they are returned. Emma McMannamy has been in charge of the clipping and indexing of these newspaper obit books.

Virginia Cassady said she is almost done with the 2011 Membership and surname directory.

Jon Baker then presented a very interesting program on Civil War Genealogy Research.

The next meeting will be March 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the library at Dennison.
