  • MCCOGS Library Inventory has been added to the public archives. It includes an index of all the genealogy printed resources available at the MCCOGS Library including the listing of the Family History files found there. While it is not a digital access to these resources, it helps in finding what is available before making the trip to the library.

  • Jan 2014 - We are pleased to announce the release of a new book about the devastating 1913 Flood at Zanesville, Ohio.

    "Warning! High Water Ahead" A photographic History of the Great 1913 Flood at Zanesville, Ohio.

    A Slide Show presentation and Book signing by the author Tom Brown took place November 9th at the John McIntyre Library. Some books were sold at that time. Anyone wanting to reserve a copy should send a check for $25.00 Plus $5.00 S&H to the MCCOGS address:

  • Dec 2013 - Our User Submitted Files Archive has been renamed to the "MCCOGS Public and Private Genealogy Files". This section includes Newsletter Archives as they are digitized. There are newsletters available for reading from 1976 to the present and those that are missing will be added over time.

  • Nov 2013 - We have added a new program to the library to manage the transcriptions that have been made available from the Cemetery Project. Visitors to the library can use the program to search for graves throughout the county. As of Nov 2013, we have 39 cemeteries in the database with more being added as the transcriptions are complete. The indexs of those that have been completed are available in the MCCOGS Public and Private Genealogy Files are and can be viewed by everyone, not just MCCOGS members. They include the names of those whose stones have been transcribed as well as direction information on the cemetery.

  • Oct 2013 - Since we are revisiting all cemeteries in the county, we have updated the GPS coordinates of all the cemeteries and you can find them by using the Muskingum Cemetery Map. The map not ony allows you to see where the cemeteries are but also provides links to other site transcriptions if they are available such as those on the Muskingum OHGenWeb site and Find-A-Grave.

  • Sep 2013 - Cemetery Transcription Project - Volunteers needed! We invite all local genealogists to assist in this project to update all the county cemetery transcriptions under the direction of Leila Young.

  • Aug 2013 - We have added a new category to our Publications Page. "Newspaper Abstracts" includes many Muskingum Newspapers abstracts from 1938-1957.
