Hardesty's History of Monroe County, Ohio

This morning I uploaded to the MonroeCountyOhio folder of MyBox an "Index of Personal History Department" created by yours truly from History of Monroe County, Ohio, published by H.H. Hardesty and Co., in 1882. The file, an HTML table, is named, Hardesty.htm.

I hope you like how it turned out as much as I do. Perhaps I'll post a short description of the steps I went through to create this file on this blog. You might be surprised at how easy it was once I had the right free tool on my computer.

I regret that I didn't make this finding aide available sooner in the HTML format which can easily be viewed with your browser. Sometimes it takes me a long time to find a way to accomplish what I want to do.

There is also a "text" file of extractions from other pages of the Hardesty publication (Monroe.txt) available on MyBox. It's been there since December 2010. The extractions are paragraphs that were of interest to me during my active days of researching. I'd forgotten about this document. (My memory issues are becoming more evident with the passing months.)

BTW, I own a copy of the History. I'm willing to do look-ups for friends who have access to MyBox.
