New Blogs for NEOhio and NWOhio

We recently learned of another blogger offering information about genealogical research in Ohio. The blogger is Derek S. Davey, and he is based in Toledo. He produces blogs for Northeast Ohio and Northwest Ohio.

Apparently he has a strong interest in genealogical research in Northeast Ohio, as he is providing his insight into using several repositories in the area. On Friday, 4 Jan 2008, he provided an overview of the Ashtabula County Library. He followed that up with an overview of the Geauga County Library in Chardon, Ohio. While he gives contact details for the Geauga Library (http://www.geauga.lib.oh.us/ The library is located at Anderson Allyn Room For Genealogical Research, Chardon Library, 110 E. Park St., Chardon, OH, 44024, Tel: (440) 285-7601, Fax: (440) 285-3803), he fails to do so also for the Ashtabula County District Library.

Since I have used the latter library on several occasions (I grew up in Ashtabula County), I am providing that information here: http://www.acdl.info/ The Ashtabula County District Library Genealogy and Local History Department is located in the Geneva Public Library, 860 Sherman Street, Geneva, Ohio 44041, Tel: (440) 466-4521, Fax: (440) 466-0162.

I haven't checked out blog for Northwest Ohio, but in looking at the one for Northeast Ohio, I see that Derek has been providing ideas for research strategies.
