Subject: [slo-genenews] Genealogy Services end at State Library of Ohio
After many years, GENEALOGY SERVICES AT THE STATE LIBRARY OF OHIO ARE ENDING COMPLETELY as of April 19, 2007. The entire genealogy collection is being moved to the main location of the Columbus Metropolitan Library at 96 S. Grant Ave. on the east side of downtown Columbus (near Grant Hospital). The collection will be available for use there BEGINNING APRIL 25. They will provide in-the-library access to the same online genealogy services.
Some advantages of the new location are: Extended Hours -- the new location is a public library that includes evening and weekend hours; Larger Staff -- the new location has over three times the number of staff working in the Genealogy area; a Larger Budget to add material to the collection.
Beginning April 25, 2007, here is the contact information for Genealogy services:
