"If your research is mainly in Ottawa County and you live in or near the Ottawa County area, I highly recommend that you visit the
Elmore Library in Elmore Ohio. I has an excellent history and genealogy
section for Ottawa County; information that you will not find anywhere
The Librarian for this section of the library is Grace Leubke, author,
researcher and editor of many genealogy and historical publications about
Ottawa County. She recently authored and published "The History of Elmore Ohio". Her books and publications can be found in such prestigious libraries as the New York City Library and the Library of Congress."

Ottawa County is located on Lake Erie in the Black Swamp district. Ottawa is an Indian word meaning "trader" and came from the Ottawa tribe famous for its trading.
Port Clinton, the county seat, attracts a great many tourists in the summer. Located here are the Erie Industrial Park and the U.S. Army Erie Ordnances Depot, one of the county's largest employers.
Offshore from Ottawa County lie the "Wine Islands" noted for their vineyards. Other industries include; stone-clay-glass, metals, rubber, food, transportation equipment, machinery, meat grinders, ordnance items, gypsum products, precision tools, beryllium alloys, and building materials.
