With over 1,800 Ohioan surnames referenced in this work, Mr. Hehir provides, in one source, a comprehensive listing of all printed Ohioan genealogies and family histories that have made their way into major library collections across the U.S. The author researched library listings and catalogs covering many genealogical libraries, including the Library of Congress, the National Genealogical Society Library, and the Library of the Daughters of the American Revolution along with historical association libraries from Massachusetts to California. Many of the books deal with multiple families, some with non-Ohio roots. Arranged for ease of use, the entries are presented alphabetically according to surname, with a cross index to family and secondary names to help researchers find surnames that would otherwise remain buried within the text. Also included is a separate bibliography of titles on microfilm at the Library of Congress. No genealogist working with Ohioan families should be without this time-saving volume on his or her shelf.
