Tuscarawas County Genealogical Library to Open

The Tuscarawas County Genealogical Library will be opening for the 2021 season April 20th at 11 am!

When you visit – remember to ask about our upcoming genealogy classes. It’s time to brush up on your skills and add more ancestors to your tree.

We have a new First Family Chair (and newest Trustee), Cheryl Abernathy. She holds several positions with Holmes and Wayne Counties Genealogical Societies, along with holding positions with the OGS, and she handles the Stark County newsletter. We are pleased to welcome her aboard! Cheryl has mentioned the possibility of having a First Family Application class to help you understand the steps to becoming a First Family member.

Are you able to join our First Family Lineage Society? Do you have direct line family members in Tuscarawas County by December 31, 1830? If so, mention you would be interested in applying and having a class to help with the process.

Please ignore the construction beside our library. We are hoping it will soon be finished. The library is located at 307 Center St, Dennison, Ohio. We have street parking and 4 parking places on the alley behind the library.

We will still be observing standard Covid practices – masks are required to enter and please maintain a 6′ social distance.
