The information on these Surname pages contains lists of names, events, years, locations,
and sources; be cautious with inferences. [See the "Bibliography" page, which is located
on a separate bibliography page]. These materials are intended to inform that these
folks had a Wood County connection and provide references for further study. The
references are a place for researchers to find additional information.
It is suggested that the researcher join a RootsWeb or USGenNet surname or a geographical
e-mail list. Such USGenNet surname/geographic e-mail lists are located at usgennet.org.
Such RootsWeb lists are located at rootsweb.com.
Most researchers like to make their own discoveries, as opposed to someone just handing
them unverified information. That is where the "fun" is to be found. Besides, each
researcher must, themselves, evaluate any information that they include in their
"family" histories and genealogies. Therefore, the pertinent information is name,
event, time period, geographic location and reference for information.
This set of pages is organized by name, type of informaion or event, time period or year,
geographic location, and source. This covers the most relevant information for
searches by the researcher. This gives an opportunity to narrow down a search for
a particular surname, thus saving some time and energy on the part of the researcher.
The reference source is a short hand, giving the source and location within that source.
The complete source is located/cited on a bibliography page linked from each page.
To ask for look-ups, it is suggested that a researcher join a RootsWeb surname or

Square, Bowling Green, OH 43402 [email@example.com]. In your request, please give,
