Ohio Name and Institution Index, 1796-1850

The Ohio Name and Institution Index, 1796-1850, is an offshoot of the Morgan Bibliography of Ohio Imprints Database, which "describes books, pamphlets, and broadsides printed in Ohio, from the earliest in 1796 through 1850."

The Name and Institution Index includes nearly 90,000 entries, mostly from school catalogues and city directories, in the format "Name/ Occupation/ Employer/ Residence/ City and State/ Gender/ Morgan Book Number." If your ancestor lived in Cleveland in 1838 and was a contributing member of society (a long shot, I know), you might be able to find him here.
