States: Ohio: Mahoning
Check with the Clerk of the Common Pleas Court of Mahoning County for when they began processing divorces.If they handled the divorce the final decree will be registed in an index; usually by year and last name. Some pleadings may be available on microfilm or microfiche.
I think divorces prior to abt 1850 required an act of the legislature and would be in the legislative archives in Columbus.
For information on a paticular lawyer, check with the Mahoning Co. Bar Association and the local genealogy societies.
