Wood County Genealogical Society


Wood County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society

The Wood County Chapter, Ohio Genealogical Society was chartered as the 50th Chapter of The Ohio Genealogical Society in April 1980 to promote the history of Wood County, Ohio and its people.

The general purpose of the Chapter is to assist individuals interested in genealogy in tracing their ancestors, with emphasis to Wood County; to foster good research methods and documentation.  In addition, the Chapter receives, collects, purchases, and preserves manuscripts, books, records, and family histories and makes them available for use in genealogical research.

The chapter has completed the project to photograph all the tombstones in Wood County and make them available on-line.  Complete cemeteries have been done by a dedicated group of volunteers under the guidance of Wood County Genealogical Society members (sorry no individual photos are being accepted).  Try our cemetery search page today.
