General Information

The Society is located in Hamilton, the county seat of Butler County, Ohio. Primary emphasis is placed on research in Hamilton City and the surrounding townships; however, the Society frequently publishes material of value to all Butler County researchers. Additionally, the Society welcomes anyone with an interest in genealogy without regard to ancestral location.

Society Purpose

The Society aids in the collection, indexing, preservation, and publication of Butler County records. The Society also actively assists individuals in tracing their ancestry by means of lectures, educational workshops, and provision of library, newsletters, and research assistance.


Regular Meetings:
The Society usually meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the lower level of the Lane Public Library, North Third and Buckeye Streets, Hamilton, Ohio.

Upcoming Meetings:  Contact John T. Pack for more information

The Society Newsletter: Buckeye Branches

Buckeye Branches is distributed four times a year to all Society members. Publishing abstracts of Butler County records has been a priority for the newsletter. Ongoing projects include the abstracting of articles from the Hamilton Intelligencer as well as later Hamilton newspapers. The Society has also published Butler County Estate Inventory indexes, abstracts of the death records of the Butler County Probate Court, and tax lists. These features make the newsletter a valuable research tool for local and out of state members.  Ann Elam, Jan Betscher, Linda Thompson and John Pack, are serving as editors of Buckeye Branches


The membership year runs from January 1 to December 31. Annual dues are $10. Those who wish to apply for membership are invited to write the Society. Please send your name and address, surnames being researched, and dues to Southwest Butler County Genealogical Society, P. O. Box 243, Hamilton, Ohio 45012.
