Frequently Asked Questions

Can you do some local research for me in Trumbull County?

I am unable to do research for Trumbull County, I have moved and am unable to get to the resources I use to. I have four Ohio Counties that I take care of as well, so there may be a delay in replying to you. What I have I will try to add to these pages. You can check with some of the others who have volunteered there time on the Lookups page.

What you can all so do is post a query to the Trumbull County Query Forum. That way someone else who may be researching the same person or who may have some information might see it and be able to respond to your query.

You can also join the Trumbull County OHTRUMBU-L list , and post your query there.

Where can I purchase books about Trumbull County?

I am adopted, can you help me find my birth parents/my original birth record before the adoption?

After an adoption, the original birth record and all other legal documents related to the adoption are sealed and are not accessible except under certain procedures specified by state law.

There is a very good list of web pages for Adoption Resources on Cindi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet, which you can find at the link:
