More Ohio Births Online

FamilySearch has posted additions to the Ohio County Births image database today so perhaps it will be another late night on the computer! They all do not seem to be indexed but users can get to them through the browse feature. The previous omissions in Cuyahoga, Franklin, Jefferson, and Morrow county seem to have been addressed. They also have images of the Delayed Birth registrations for 1941 through 1965 in many, but not all of the Ohio counties, also to be utilized through Browse. Also noted is the addition of a very short run from the Scioto County Recorder's Office. Won't that be great when all the county deeds go online? Computer genealogy is wonderful! Although the county births database title now suggests that the births go into the 2000s, they do not have Health Dept births 1908 onward nor an index. Researchers still need to check with the county health departments for those indexes or use the limited Ohio birth indexes on the OGS web site and
