names of relatives. Quite often relatives are not
specifically named in other types of poorhouse records.
Note: For every county in Ohio it would be a good idea to check
the statewide resources listed below.
|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

County Archives of Ohio. Those which inventoried infirmary records
have been transcribed and links are here posted on a table.
