Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788425439, Paperback)

Cuyahoga County, Ohio, bordering the southern shores of Lake Erie, has a rich history left behind by our ancestors. These early settlers left many genealogical footprints, and this series is devoted to finding those past footprints. Cleveland, Ohio, founded in 1796, was a center of commerce and industrial growth very early in Cuyahoga County history. It is one of the major ports in the Great Lakes area. Because of its location on the Cuyahoga River, Lake Erie, and the close proximity to deposits of iron and coal ore, Cleveland became an important industrial center. This industrial and transportation hub attracted many immigrants and others looking for work. Hopefully, you will locate your ancestor within these pages. This volume is composed of entries, most from the 1800s, that are listed alphabetically by surname and include the given name in most cases. Individual entries are brief, but additional data such as occupation; date of birth, marriage, or death; place of birth, marriage, or death; christening date; naturalization date; parents; or residence may also be included. The information source, such as the 1861 Cleveland directory or the 1830 Census, is listed for each entry.
