Ohio, County Births, 1841-2003 at FamilySearch

The latest additions to the Historical Record Collections at, includes a great resource for those with Jewish families in Ohio. Almost one million images, which are indexed and search able for free were added to the Ohio, County Births, 1841-2003 collection. The collection is very easy to use, and can be done from the comfort of home.

When looking for a record of your ancestor, simple fill in the information on the search screen (as shown above). I was searching for the birth records of Rachel Cohen, who was born in 1903. I entered that information into the search box and received the following result (below).

Clicking on the view Image icon I was then able to access the original record (below). The original record added the age of the parents as well as their places of birth.

Since the histories of so many Jewish families included Ohio, this should be an incredible database to find the records of our ancestors.

  1. This appears to be a really nice tool with an extremely strong and rich database of people born between the two dates.It is always amusing to know more about our ancestors, since most of the time information passed from one generation to another gets depleted. So it is nice to see technology coming to our aid and let us rediscover our ancestors, some thing which lets us keep their heritage alive.

    I am sure many of those reading this blog, have already typed out the url and must have started to search and explore about their forebears,
    So happy searching!
