What exactly does The Western Reserve Historical Society do? It documents our history here in Northeast Ohio. Through museum objects and artifacts, books, journals and manuscripts, genealogical history, and even historical properties, the WRHS is our resource on local history. The Research Library holds many significant collections for which it provides print, manuscript, archival and digital support, with a large focus on genealogy and supporting resources.

Join NOBS and Harriett Logan to learn a few of the basics before embarking on a new hobby which could turn into a serious passion. Bring a book or two for consultation.
