Donations Help Us Preserve Your Past

Ohio has been the western edge of the American frontier and the center of its industrial strength. It’s the state where flight was discovered, astronauts were born, and eight Presidents called home. But most importantly, it’s where your ancestors had their roots.

By donating to the Ohio Genealogical Society, you can help us preserve not only your history but also the history of our state and country. Please consider donating to protect the mission of our Society today.
