These family folders in the Worthington Historical Society archives are available to researchers by appointment. These files contain quite varied information on families that has been given to us by descendants or genealogical researchers. Some are quite thick and others contain only one or two items. Most of this is secondary material, some from printed sources, some from oral family histories. Some of the photos are from newspapers and some are photocopies of originals in our archives. Names included under “Miscellaneous People” are usually a single item rather a group of items in folders of named families. Photocopies of text and scans of original photos may be made for a charge depending on the number of pages copied or scanned. Contact
