Digitization has begun on the City of Cincinnati’s birth and death records prior to 1909. For the next several months, portions of the records will be unavailable for research while they are being digitized. If you wish to view any of the birth and death records, please contact the Archives and Rare Books Library by phone at 513-556-1959 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that the records are available. Also, please be aware that replies to research requests may be delayed while certain records are inaccessible. Further information on these records and guidelines for submitting a research request can be found on the Archives and Rare Books Library website. Full web access to the digitized records should be available by Summer 2010.
