Resources about the history of greater Cleveland and northeast Ohio.

Key Resources

Research Basics

One of my colleagues, Ann Marie Smeraldi, has assembled HERE a nice page of helpful tips on starting research projects and using our resources.

Welcome to History of Cleveland & NEO

This is the Library Guide for information on the history of greater Cleveland and NE Ohio.  Notice the tabs across the top of this page, detailing specific types of resources and other information topics designed to help you.  The "Neighborhood Histories" opens another entire guide, detailing resources by local neighborhoods.

Note too that many of these pages give you room to comment and rate this information for usefulness. 

If you have any questions, please email or call Bill, whose contact information is at the right.
