Marriages 1788 to date are located in the Probate Court in the county where the marriage occurred. The Ohio Genealogical Society has published statewide indices for 1788 through 1830. The LDS web site – www.familysearch.org – is a good, but not complete, index of Ohio marriages. The Ohio Dept of Health maintains a statewide index to marriages 1944 to date.

Births and deaths in Ohio 1867 to 1908 are located in the Probate Court in the county where the event occurred. The Latter Day Saints (LDS) has filmed most of these and they may be used in their research centers. There is no statewide index. Deaths 1908 to 1953 have been transferred to the Ohio Historical Society. Copies may be obtained there and at the Akron-Summit Co Public Library from microfilmed copies at a very reasonable price. And index to part of this, 1913 to 1945, appears online at www.ohiohistory.org in the Library/Archives section. Deaths 1953 to date and births 1908 to date are located in the Ohio Dept of Health, Columbus. There are copies filed in local county health departments as well. Copies are unfortunately about $20.00 each. They are able to do searches, but there is no online or published index.
