Hi All!

In 2002, I was making a Web Page for my ancestor, Wyatt Earp and Working on Another Genealogy Website.
I got to thinking .... Why am I working on Other Counties and States when Conneaut, Ohio doesn't have a History & Genealogy Website? 
That was the beginning of this Web Site and I have been working on it ever since.
I did decide, on July 23, 2009, to make another website that would use all my county data from the rest of Ohio ...and some.  You will find a link to it on this webpage.
All original photographs on this site including bridge photos taken of the beginning and end of the Bridge on the East side of town were taken by me.
The Photos on this page were all taken by me.
I will be adding more as I find the need for them.
Good Luck on your Research and If there is anything I can lookup for you that involves this Northeastern most area of Ohio, Please feel free to email me @
conneaut44030@hotmail.com
I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Good Luck and Happy Hunting.

What's In a Name?
Conneaut's is Basis for Dispute.

     Not all authorities agree on the meaning of Indian names, and the origin and meaning of Conneaut is disputed by many.

     The Bureau of American Ethnology, Washington, D. C. states, "Conneaut is evidently an Iroquois word, which probably does not mean either "river of many fish" or "snow water," but Ga-nen-yot meaning "standing stone."  William M. Beauchamp gives "stone at bottom of water" for Conneaut."

     Gennett's Origin of Place Names in United States gives still another meaning when it suggests that it is a corruption of the Indian word Gunniate which they say means "it is a long time since they are gone."

     Let others call it "standing stone," "snow water,"  "stone at the bottom of water"  or  "it is a long time since they are gone,"  but to most of the people in this section of Ohio it will always be as we learned it years ago "river of many fish".
