All Eyes on Ohio, Arkansas
8/1/2002
Two states are making additional archival materials available to the world through Web sites.

A collection of Ohio's historical treasures recently made its online debut. The Ohio Memory Online Scrapbook at <www.ohiomemory.org> brings together primary sources from all parts of the state. The site was created to commemorate the Buckeye State's bicentennial in 2003. It's also meant to celebrate state and local history; encourage cooperation between archives, historical societies, libraries, museums and other cultural organizations; and allow the world to discover and explore Ohio's rich past.

Also, the Arkansas History Commission unveiled a redesign of its site at <www.ark-ives.com>, along with three new searchable databases of its holdings. Arkansas Newspapers contains information on 3,000 titles published in Arkansas from 1819 to the present. You can search by title, city and county. Arkansas County Records covers selected records from 1797 to 1950, searchable by title or county. Arkansas Military Records includes Arkansas Civil War service and Confederate pension files; information about Arkansas soldiers in the Mexican War, the Spanish-American War and the First World War; and various indexes to service in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, Indian wars and the US regular army.
