This fire destroyed many of the records in the courthouse, including marriage license applications and returns. Apparently many of the older records (before 1860) were stored in another part of the courthouse and did not sustain as extensive damage as those from the period 1860 until March 1884; however, the license returns before 1860 have entire month gaps where there are no records surviving, and some records are missing first o...

Between 1858 and 1899, the Commercial published death notices of local citizens on a daily basis. These death notices are of great value to genealogical researchers since the city of Cincinnati did not keep any records of deaths prior to 1865, and until 1908 the records that were kept were not exhaustive. The information contained in each entry is name, death date, age, maiden name, publication date(s) and page number. The author has included an alphabetical list of women by their maiden names.665 pages, 8.5x11, 1996, 8.5x11, 2 vols., paper, 665 pp, Softcover, Heritage Books, Inc View more info
