First Families & Pioneer Families are Guernsey County's lineage society. For inclusion into First Families, your ancestor must have lived here before 1830. For inclusion into Pioneer Families your ancestor must have lived here prior to 1850. To be included into these lineage societies, you must prove the connection between you and the stated ancestor. Sources used for documentation are birth, marriage, and death records. Land records and wills may also be used.
