No. We welcome research visits to the library and you may search our records of genealogical interest at your leisure during regular hours. If you cannot visit, we recommend that patrons consult Hamilton County Genealogical Society for a list of professional researchers.
We will search the specific record sets of genealogical interest including Hamilton County Wills, Hamilton County Declarations of Intent, and Cincinnati Birth and Death records. However, we do not conduct general genealogical research. Please note that it is especially helpful for genealogical research if you call or email the library in advance. For ease of service, you may download this genealogical records request form , print and mail it to the address listed on the form. We do NOT accept genealogical requests via email or phone, though you can contact us in those ways to find out how to make a request.
