Been pretty quiet in terms of posting on the old blog here, but discovered this bit of information yesterday while helping a patron at the Western Reserve Historical Library. On 23 Jun 2011, the “Birth affidavits, delayed births and corrections, marriage records and voter registration” images were posted. This collection is not indexed and searchable at Familysearch, but birth corrections and affidavits are indexed at the Cleveland District Roundtable‘s site. The direct link is http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcdrt/databases/birthcorrs.html. According to the wording (“This collection is being published as images become available”) and image count (a little over 18,000 images) it does not appear that this collection is completely online yet. Nonetheless, yet another record set for Cuyahoga County will soon be available, and better yet, freely available. Happy hunting!

- Beyond the Docket Books: Digging For Gold In Probate PacketsStarts: 7:00 pmEnds: 9:00 pmLocation: Chardon Library, 110 East Park Street, Chardon, OH, United StatesDescription: Will books and probate dockets can provide a great deal of information about our ancestors, but the original estate (probate) file can reveal details about our ancestors and their families that no other record group is likely to document. Family relationships, occupations, personal possessions, and even family squabbles may all be contained in that little packet. Administrator bonds, inventories, sale lists, distributive accounts, and other items found in the estate file breathe life into our ancestors and provide us with a glimpse of the person behind the names and dates.
