Proposed New Home for Belmont County, Ohio Historical Records

At a time when many libraries and archives are facing tough decisions because of tight budgets, it was nice to read this article from The Intelligencer/Wheeling News-Register regarding plans to construct a building to house historical records from Belmont County, Ohio. This is particularly good news for me since I recently found through my great-grandfather’s World War I Draft Registration at Ancestry that the family was living there in 1918. This was news to me since they appear in both the 1910 and 1920 U.S. Censuses in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

I hope that more counties follow Belmont County’s example!
