Re: Enumeration of Blacks Immigrating to Ohio

Does anyone know where I can view this document, is it at the state or local level? So far I have not been able to view online. It covers the years of 1861-1863. It also references it being on film at FHL, 1, 688, 779. Just wondering if someone indexed it or something. Thanks

"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".
