  • To create and build an interest in preserving and collecting historical records of this and related areas.
  • To encourage active membership in this chapter and in The Ohio Genealogical Society. 
  • To take an active part in collecting records and making them available for use in research.
  • To educate individuals in research methods.
  • To aid individuals in their research.
  • To publish, if advisable, genealogical materials compiled by the Chapter members, and to copyright this material when necessary
  • To support family research at the Butler County records Center and Archives in Hamilton, Ohio

Don't forget our March program at 7:00 p.m. on the 24th at MidPointe Library in West Chester. The topic will be "To Render Some Service" by Greg Fugitt, author of "Fantastic Shadows on Upon the Ground." It deals with the 35th Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War, and about the more than 350 citizens from Butler County who served in the regiment.
