Genealogy Trails is a volunteer-based project dedicated to transcribing
historical and genealogical data. Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical
and historical data for the free use of all researchers.
We gratefully accept your contributions of data such as census information, marriage, birth or death records, old
photos, obituaries, family histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build
their family tree! If you have information to donate, please email us with your contributions. Thanks
and Happy Trails!

Founded on December 26, 1817, Perry county was the
55th county to be formed in Ohio. Portions of Fairfield, Washington and Muskingum Counties were taken to create
Perry County. Its county seat is New Lexington. Perry county was named for Oliver Hazard Perry,
a hero of the War of 1812.
Another noted city in the county is Somerset, where the first
Catholic church in the state was built in 1808.
Genealogy Trails is looking for folks

it can be. If you are interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page for further information and then contact Kim.
