I am a retired Genealogist and Record searcher. I was born and raised in Columbiana County. If you need any volunteering, I have all the cemetery listings, All the census, marriages, deaths, family histories over 20 of mine) plus County Histories, etc. I'd be glad to help in any way I can. I now live in Oklahoma and so I brought my Library with me. NOTE: I can't do random searches. Only ones that have specific names and locales.
