The Computerized Heritage Association is a small non-profit group interested in hobby genealogy and the advancement of the hobby by computerizing records in such a way that they may be reproduced and shared freely with other hobbyists. Individuals may be members of various genealogy or historical societies; however, as a group, Computerized Heritage Association is not associated with, nor does it direct favor, toward any other group.
The Association is based in Miami County, Ohio but that is only because it was founded by several genealogy enthusiasts living in Miami County, Ohio at the time of its formation (circa 1993). Members may live anywhere. The way to become a member is to volunteer to help type records. The Association uses a computerized format so that these records can be integrated smoothly into a database and given to the public free of charge. There are no dues or membership fees. The only "pay" a member receives from belonging is the satisfaction of helping others.
The group sponsors a growing on-line index of over 550,000 records known as the Miami Valley Genealogy Index (MVGI). At this time the MVGI may be accessed from links from many genealogy pages. The Index itself is on-line from two URLs, with a third to come.
The Computerized Heritage Association also sponsors this web site, Miami County, Ohio Genealogical Researchers as well as the Miami County, Ohio Genealogy Mail List. Members have indexed selected records from twelve southwestern Ohio counties known as Ohio's Miami Valley. These counties are Butler, Champaign, Clark, Darke, Green, Hamilton, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, and Warren.
