The Rinker/Hower Resource Center opened its doors in 1995 with the Marion Area Genealogy Society.
From March thru December, the Marion Area Genealogical Society is open to conduct research every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Come check out our records. We have books, obits, submitted family histories, etc.
Our Resource Room is located in the basement of the Marion Historical Society which is located at 169 East Church Street, Marion, Ohio. It is on the southeast corner of Church and State Streets.
We do our best to have a volunteer helper available for your assistance.
Below is a list of the titles for submitted family history books which are housed at our library. This is just one shelf in our library (sorry, not pictured above). At the bottom, is a map for your guidance.
