Lake County Records of Interest

Cynthia Turk maintains this helpful compilation of resources for Lake County. We offer this convenient resource in pdf format.


The Society abstracted the naturalization petitions from the Lake County Probate Court (1860-1906) and the Lake County Common Pleas Court (1906-1975). This includes Declarations of Intention and petitions that failed for a variety of reasons.

The Naturalization pages have been migrated from our old website to our new site as of 4/20/2018. The table pages have a lot of information so be patient, they may take a few seconds to load.

School Records

Our current project is a huge collection of monthly teacher reports from the early 1910s. We are typing the lists of children, ages and grades. Handwriting is generally very good. Contact us for referral to the project chair, or join us at a meeting. This is a project that can be done in your home.
