Trips to Ohio 2007 and 2011 in search of family history!

Below is a listing of the trip posts I have written about on this blog. It is my view that genealogical research trips are just as important as the actual research. I therefore prepare a detailed itinerary, plan my route and identify repositories to visit. As I experience the trip I take as many pictures as I can. At night I take time to write about the days activities in a journal.  If you don’t you will forget.

Mt. Vernon, Ohio

Mt. Vernon, Ohio 2011

In 2007, I traveled to Ohio and concentrated on the central part of the state emphasizing my Keller and Spracklin lines, with a little Delano as well.

See the post Remembering Ohio 2007, July 13, 2011 for more details.

On my trip to Ohio in 2011 I revisited the locations I had experienced in 2007 and revisited Keller and Spracklin sites.  I also tried to do more on the Delano family. I was determined to visit Ebenezer Goss in Ravenna, Ohio and his brother Solomon Goss in Washington County, Ohio. It was a big trip but very rewarding.

As I travel, I usually write the post about my travels as quickly as it happens and share the various repositories with my reader.  I have been lucky and have had the opportunity to do a lot of traveling for genealogical reasons so I like to share with others what the area is like, what are the historical sites and the archives so you will have an idea of what the archive is about. Be advised that archives move, change their websites and more. So if you find a broken link you can also let me know.
