Ohio Valley German Biographical Index
Don H. Tolzmann
This new compilation provides access to several major German-American works, heretofore unindexed, covering the German element in the Ohio Valley from the mid-eighteenth to the early twentieth century. These works are Cincinnati in Wort und Bild (Burgheim), 1888; Deutsche Chronik in der Geschichte des Ohio-Thales und seiner Hauptstadt Cincinnati ins Besondere... (Klauprecht), 1864; Early Nineteenth-Century German Settlers in Ohio (Mainly Cincinnati and Environs), Kentucky, and Other States: Parts 1-3 (Smith), 1984; and Cincinnati Sonst und Jetzt (Tenner), 1878. These resources are available in most large public libraries and in research, genealogical, and university libraries. This volume is of particular value to researchers interested in those rural and urban areas which were settled by German-Americans who came from the greater Cincinnati area, such as Lawrence County, Tennessee; New Ulm, Minnesota; Guttenberg, Iowa; Teutopolis, Illinois; and Oldenburg, Indiana. Individuals in the index are arranged alphabetically by surname; the source is given with each name but no other data is included. Altogether, 3,754 names are indexed here; non-German names in the sources are excluded.
