Follow Friday: Ohio Genealogy Bloggers

I’ve created a new page here at A Sense of Family that I hope will become a good resource for people searching for genealogy blogs written in and about Ohio. You’ll find it under the “Ohio Blogs” tab at the top of the page. I’ve compiled a list of many of the blogs I know about, but it’s still very much a work in progress. So if you write or know of a family history blog that focuses on Ohio ancestors, localities, records and/or repositories, please let me know in a comment or email so I can add it to the list. I’d like to include blogs by Ohio genealogical and historical societies and organizations, too. With your help, I hope to build a useful directory to all the talented bloggers writing about Ohio genealogy.

As always, thanks for reading!


  1. Thanks for the terrific tab & pointer to other Ohio blogs!!

  2. Thanks for the list, Shelley! Helpful! I'd love to find other blogs focusing on the Ohio areas I'm researching. What a great idea.

    I guess I'll have to get writing on my Ohio roots some more. Right now, I'm stuck in Chicago...

    1. I'm glad to know you think it's helpful, Jacqi--that's what I'm shooting for. And Chicago roots are fascinating, too!

  3. Shelley ~ What a great list! A really valuable resource! There are several blogs here I didn't know about. I'm anxious to check them out. Looks like some great reading!
    Thank you too for including my blog. I do appreciate it.

  4. Shelley,
    I was thrilled to read your mention of our Hamilton Co. Genealogy Society Blog in the OGN Newsletter. I wrote a post on it that you can check out here In case you hadn't noticed previously, we have "links to member blogs" on the site. These people are member of our society and have Hamilton Co. ancestors. We consider it an honor to be mentioned by you. BTW -- If I weren't already following you, I'd be happy to be your 100th!

  5. Shelley,
    I forgot to mention. One of our "young" members just started a blog on attracting "21sters" to genealogy societies. She writes about what it takes to attract tech savvy younger genealogists to societies. We'll be adding a link for her to our blog soon.

    1. That's great, Kathy! I added it to the list. All our societies can definitely use more "21sters."


Thank you for reading my blog! I welcome and appreciate your comments.
