Access to the Ohio Civil War Center is an exclusive benefit for OGS members. Members, please log in to access the Ohio Civil War Genealogy Center.

The Ohio Civil War Center provides online databases and resources relating to Ohio’s participation in the Civil War. Some of the materials presented in this section have been published in past issues of OCWGJ, some are searchable compilations of materials that were published in several issues of OCWGJ, and still others are new databases that are too large for publication in a print journal.

A major feature of the Ohio Civil War Genealogy Center is a complete run of all back issues in PDF file format.
