Northwest Ohio Resources
Local Government Records
The Guide to Local Government Records covers a 19-county region in northwest Ohio. It identifies and defines each local political subdivision, describes its offices (except those of county government, which are discussed in the Ohio County Records Manual), and includes a comprehensive listing of all local government records deposited at the CAC. The Guide helps to define the originating local government agency's role in the creation of public records.
The Center for Archival Collections has an active newspaper collecting and microfilming program in nineteen northwest Ohio counties. To date, the CAC has collected over 650 titles covering almost 6,000 microfilm rolls of newspapers previously held by publishers, courthouses, and libraries. This guide is intended to aid the researcher who needs to locate these newspapers. The holdings for each title may vary from a single issue to a series spanning more than a century.
