Genealogy & Local History
The Marysville Public Library has many resources available for patrons researching their family history or who are just interested in the history of Marysville and Union County.
The best place to start when researching your Union County family is with the 78-volume Genealogical Index of Delaware and Union Counties, commonly known as the Bouic Index. This unique resource, compiled by Margaret Main Bouic, indexes many records for persons living in Union County from its beginnings to about the 1990s.
The library collection includes county histories, many compiled family histories, cemetery books and a family surname file maintained by the Union County Genealogical Society. We have microfilm of local newspapers as well as many local records (see lists below).
Library staff members are happy to help you with your genealogical quest. Please use the Ask Us! button below to send questions. Due to time and staffing constraints, questions requiring lengthy or complex research will be referred to the Union County Genealogical Society.
Here is a short list of books to help you get started with your genealogy research.
