OGS Library: Researchers
The Ohio Genealogical Society maintains a list of researchers who will work in a particular Ohio county or library for a fee. It is neither intended nor implied that any of the researchers are recommended by the Ohio Genealogical Society, but their names are provided merely as a service to patrons who request professional assistance.
The following researchers are willing to do research for a fee. All persons on this list are members of the Ohio Genealogical Society. All negotiations must be made directly with the researcher. The Ohio Genealogical Society does not recommend any particular individual or take any responsibility for the work performed. This list is provided for your information and convenience only.
This list is limited to residents of Ohio or persons living within a 50 mile radius of the State. This condition is withdrawn if the researcher will show that he/she has access to court and vital records in Ohio. We request that the researcher reply in some way to all correspondence received. We ask that the researcher notify the patron of his/her fees before performing the professional work. If a researcher lists a county of expertise, it is expected that they have access to the court records of that county--not just the published histories available at any large library.
Clients should supply an SASE or International reply coupon when making the first contact. This researchers list is provided as a service to our members, and we feel that the above conditions will insure that their needs are met.
