Ohio County Deaths 1840 to 2001
I noticed that FamilySearch now has 28 Ohio databases rather than 27. I think the new one is Ohio County Deaths 1840 to 2001. Most will be from the 1867 to 1908 period when Probate Court handled death records. There are 82 counties online so far. Ashland and Richland near the OGS Library are not among them. Also some counties are incomplete as yet. Henry County, for example, begins in 1882, yet the OGS chapter has abstracted earlier death records, so they must exist. However, FamilySearch now has 899,395 fantastic images online that were not there previously! Of course, the death indexes have been posted for a couple years. Enjoy!
