Title: Annotated Lawrence County, Ohio, Children’s Home Register, 1874-1926
SKU: 42
This is a much-needed Ohio reference book and an important social history that covers more than 50 years of children in need and families in despair. In 1866 the Ohio General Assembly authorized the construction of children’s homes in each county and in 1874, Lawrence County opened its children’s home in Ironton. Mrs. Kounse transcribed the hard-to-read microfilm records from this home and added, through her extensive notes, additional information gleaned from newspapers, penitentiary records, boys and girls’ industrial records, blind school records, and personal interviews, among other things. These children were often sent to homes in other cities or counties and all other parties involved, in addition to the children and their parents, have been indexed.“The registers and the numerous footnotes put these children into context and their stories come alive. What a great model for other institutional records and certainly a valuable resource for Lawrence County researches.” –Paul Milner, FORUM Editor
