At BiographyWriter.com, we have been writing genealogy biographies to preserve our collective heritage for years. Many of the genealogy biographies on this site center around people who settled in the Cincinnati, Ohio area.
Writing a genealogy biography from historical data can be an arduous task. Sometimes it’s simple to find people in historical records and other times, less so. It is important to be accurate.
The sources that we use often include the following:
- The Federal U.S. Census Report
- The Cincinnati Williams Street Directory
- Cemetery Records
- Ship Passenger Lists
- Naturalization Applications and Records
- Marriage Records
- Birth Records
The more records that verify a fact, the better. Often sources conflict on dates and spelling of names. Including the conflict in the genealogy biography is better than just making a determination.
