Query-Ohio Baptist General Association
Has anyone had any success getting records and documentation from this organization? I have tried the state organization (they do have some records from sessions on line), the archives in Pennsylvania and various other sources with minimal success. Most calls and emails go unanswered. I am searching for documentation on a g-g-grandfather and also a g-grandfather and I believe that this documentation will help to clarify what churches they pastored at, time periods, issues that were affecting the Black baptist churches in the region, etc. I have contacted some of the older churches that had been in the Association (early 1900s) with little result. I am seeking information on the Allegheny Baptist General Association--not the same as the one easily found on line--this would have been an African American organization started in 1891/92 with the help of the Caucasian Baptist organization and also the Trumbull (Ohio) Baptist Association. Any suggestions or thoughts on alternate publications where I can find this information would be appreciated. I did purchase a Pennsylvania reel dealing with the Allegheny Associaiton which included some of the minutes. Would there be anyone who has the Ohio reel from Cengage who would be willing to offer assistance?
