The names and Cincinnati-area burial locations of soldiers who served in conflicts from the Revolutionary War to World War I are being made available online thanks to two genealogists who rescued records that were bound for the trash. Mary Remler and Jim Dempsey saved five priceless books from the Hamilton County Recorder’s dumpster.
A Works Progress Administration project in the 1930s cataloged that information from Hamilton County cemeteries in five books. The books had been microfilmed years ago but the microfilm was fading and a bit out of focus. The newly-discovered books can now be digitized and preserved online for everyone's use.
