Society Saturday: Ohio Historical Society
The Ohio Historical Society provides useful sources both on and offline for doing research on Ohio's Luxembourg-American families. Offline, their library serves as the archives for the state of Ohio. As such, they hold pre-1908 vital records, land records, military records, newspapers and more. Online, they offer other useful resources. Their online death certificate index allows you to search for a number of records, which you can than order in their store. Their newspaper index will allow you to find the correct microfilm for articles on your family. Microfilm can then be viewed in the library, requested by interlibrary loan, or possibly, purchased. Other databases include searchable images and War of 1812 rosters. Some digging is required, but you'll likely find what you need.
