Re: Enumeration of Blacks Immigrating to Ohio
In Response To: Enumeration of Blacks Immigrating to Ohio ()
"The “Special Enumeration of Blacks Immigrating to Ohio, 1861–1863, by the Auditor of the State” (State Archives Series 2261) is microfilmed and can be purchased from the Ohio Historical Society Microfilm Department. The microfilm includes a four-part index, by name, previous residence, questionable names, and county of those African Americans who had migrated to the state between 1 March 1861 and 3 March 1863. Forty-seven counties scattered around the state responded with at least one name, resulting in a total of 1,375 names. The Ohio Genealogical Society (see Ohio Archives, Libraries, and Societies) has published many of these enumerations in its chapter’s newsletters".
