Historical Resources

The Local and Family History Collection

The Local and Family History Department specializes primarily in materials which encompass Freedom, Troy, and Webster Townships in Wood County, Ohio. The supporting sources in this area are continually expanding. In the collection are many manuscript genealogies of local families unavailable anywhere else. In addition, there is a growing collection of German Genealogy research sources.

Historic Pictures Needed

The Local History department is involved with a digital picture project with Wood County District Public Library. If anyone has unique photos of early citizens, buildings that don't exist anymore, or other interesting photos of fires, floods, natural disasters from the entire school district, we would like to scan them for use and display on the internet. The photos would be returned to the owner. Please contact Laura King for more information.
