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!
A Little Legalese

The part of an instrument, such as a deed or will, that defines the extent of the interest being granted and any conditions affecting the grant ◘ The introductory words to the clause are ordinarily _to have and to hold_ — also termed _to have and to hold clause_.— Bryan A.
