  • About

The Wayne County Online Resource Center serves as both source and repository for research pertaining to the Wayne County residents and the communities in which they live. It is not a complete record of all residents of the county. It serves as a platform that encourages others in the community to submit information for the Wayne County (OH) Wiki. If you are interested in adding content to the website, please contact the library.

The WCOORC is divided into three main portals: Organization, Genealogy and Local History. The Organization Portal focuses on the local businesses of Wayne County, Ohio. These include both active and defunct. The Genealogy Portal focuses on the people of Wayne County. The Local History Portal focuses on the histories of townships, communities, buildings, and much more.

For an introduction to conducting genealogical research, see our Getting started guide.
