About This Web Page

First put up in May of 1995, Sharon's Marion Ohio Web page was one of the first county-based genealogy sites on the Internet. This Web site was also one of the first to include databases of names. Fortunately for us genealogists, more and more databases are being made available online all the time.

In looking at information to put on the Web, I looked at the value the Internet brings to genealogy. Thus, the information I have chosen to make available makes use of the Internet's unique features: easily maintained searchable databases and linked information -- all available 24 hours a day.

Look for these features on the Web site:

How does this information get on this Web site? I type it all in! I spend my free time putting the information on the Web rather than doing lookups. This makes the information available when you need it so that you can do your genealogy.
