We have found so many infirmary/poorhouse records for Ohio that we have created a special page for the references -- which will be found in a table alphabetized by county.
(WPA) INVENTORIES OF THE COUNTY ARCHIVES OF OHIO -- 
EXCERPTS RELATED TO POORHOUSE (INFIRMARY) HOLDINGS 

During the 1930's and 1940's the Work Projects Administration (WPA) began the process of inventorying County Archives of Ohio. Those which inventoried infirmary records have been transcribed and links are here posted on a table
