Little Cities of Black Diamonds

The Ohio History Connection’s Archives & Library, the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society (FCGHS), and the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) jointly offer a series of workshops designed to help family history researchers find out about the many records and resources available for research.

The workshops offer an in-depth review of methods, tools, and sources for exploring your family’s history. We offer in-person workshops, hands-on technology topics, and webinar presentations. See individual workshop descriptions for location, date, and time.

Were your ancestors coal miners from 1870–1920? Join experts Cheryl Blosser and John Winnenberg as they discuss the stories of coal miners in Ohio. You’ll learn how these men and women and their families from many different nationalities built the small towns and rural townships of southern Perry, northern Athens, and eastern Hocking Counties. Discover the resources at the Ohio History Center that will help your genealogy research.
