My name is  Therman and I will be your host for Washington County, Ohio. The goal of Genealogy Trails is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers. I'll be posting as much information online as possible - feel free to contribute your Obits, Biographies and Pioneer Family History by sending me an email!

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails,
view our
Volunteer Page for further information and then  contact Kim .
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our mailing lists

History of Washington County Ohio

Washington County, originally about one-half the territory now included in the State of Ohio, was established by proclamation of Gov. Arthur St. Clair, Governor of the Northwest Territory, on the 26th day of July, 1788. Events which led up to this establishment were due to the preserverance of two great men, Gen. Rufus Putnam and Rev. Dr. Manasseh Cutler, the formation and function of the Ohio Company and the passage by the Continental Congress of the "Ordinance of 1787".

County Seat: Marietta, the oldest city in Ohio, founded in 1788.
