Five Publications from Cincinnati Historical Society Library Available to Researchers World-Wide
The most thoughtful, accurate and engaging writing on the history of Cincinnati is now available to everyone – students, teachers, scholars, researchers or just curious minds – via a new web site initiative at Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal.
Over 20,000 pages from historic journals such as the Bulletin of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio, The Cincinnati Historical Society Bulletin, Queen City Heritage, The Cincinnati Quarterly Journal of Science and the Journal of the Society of Natural History are text-searchable and available through the Historical Society Library page on our www.cincymuseum.org web page.
Museum Center has created a full-text electronic database of five of its 19th and 20th century journals. This database consists of:
21 volumes of the Bulletin of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio, published from 1943 to 1963
19 volumes of The Cincinnati Historical Society Bulletin, published from 1964 to 1982
17 volumes of Queen City Heritage, published from 1983 to 1999
two volumes of The Cincinnati Quarterly Journal of Science, published in 1874 and 1875
22 volumes of the Journal of the Society of Natural History, published between 1878 and 1945.
The three history journals cover a wide variety of local history topics including:
communities (Greenhills, Clifton, Over-The-Rhine, etc.)
notable individuals (William Howard Taft, Salmon P. Chase, etc.)
ethnic and religious groups (German Americans, African Americans, Jews, etc.)
local organizations and places (Cincinnati Fire Department, Eden Park, Children’s Hospital, Coney Island, etc.)
cemetery records (extremely useful to genealogists).
The two natural history journals include articles on fossils, mound builders, local flora and fauna, etc.
