Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio


"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been Removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Check Out - "Online Ohio Death Records & Indexes" - "A Genealogy Guide for Finding Obituaries, Cemetery Burials and Death Records"

Is there still a pesky Ohio obituary or death record eluding you?  You just may find it through clicking on a link in one of the resources provided on this website if you click on the title of this post first!  

The links arrangement is county by county following the general categories, so you have a greater chance to hone in on the right one that could be of the most help to you.  Yes, some links lead you to paid sites like "Ancestry.com."   

If you are not an "Ancestry.com" subscriber, your library card for your local public library can be your key to access a lot of the resources "Ancestry.com" offers

Always check with your local public library to learn if you are able to access "Ancestry.com" at their branch using their library card - - the library version of "Ancestry," and learn if the information you need is included in the library's version.  I'm sure a reference desk or genealogy department reference person could help you make that determination before your library visit.  

You'll have a lot of fun with this website and hopefully learn something new along the way during your research!
