New Adoption Law in Ohio - Beginning 3/20/2015 -- From Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:  Beginning Friday, potentially hundreds of thousands of adoptees may get the answers they’ve wanted. Ohio will throw open a door that had been slammed shut to as many as 400,000.  Birth certificates and court decrees — some sealed as long as 51 years — will become available to adoptees or their direct descendants for the first time without a court order. It remains to be seen, however, whether the papers that many adoptees have longed to hold in their hands will contain the information they want.  For the full article:  More from the Ohio Department of Health:

Social and vital statistics for the year ending 31 March 1896:  There were 714 births during the year, of which 355 were white males and 356 were white females, 1 colored male and 2 colored females.   [source:  Richland Shield & Banner:  20 June 1896, Vol. LXXIX, No. 6]
