The Mahoning County Chapter No 50
of The Ohio Genealogical Society
The Mahoning County Chapter of The Ohio Genealogical Society was founded in 1972 on the principles and guidelines of The Ohio Genealogical Society. It is our mission to help and to educate those who are searching their family histories, especially those with family roots in Mahoning County.
To fulfill this mission, we hold educational seminars and informative monthly meetings. We also provide volunteers at both the Mahoning County Courthouse and main branch of The Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County.
We are also committed to the publication of books containing genealogical material from both public and private areas. We also assist government and private entities to protect and preserve old and deteriorating records.
Our presence is but a reflection of those who have come before us. To learn who they are, where they came from and what they accomplished, will help us understand who we are. To this end is why we as a society exist.
