Hamilton County Genealogical Society Gets a New Look

Hamilton County Genealogical Society is excited to reveal our new brand mark and masthead. We have been working steadfastly for the past year to bring a fresh modern look to our public face.
Our goal was to build on the strength of our organization and move forward with a strong sense of modernity. We wanted a connection to place with a nod to tradition and to broaden our appeal to younger generations who are starting to embrace genealogy and its technological advances. Our previous mark served us well, but it was time for an update.
We are pleased to reveal our new mark featuring our beloved John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge. It is an homage to the Ohio River, a defining pathway in the collective heritage of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, and our entire tri-state region. This landmark, having served our community for over 150 years, is unique to Cincinnati and represents our strength of community.
As you interact with HCGS through our various digital and social platforms (Facebook, website, blog, etc.), you will notice the use of the Cincinnati Panorama daguerreotype taken in 1848 by Fontayne & Porter. This is yet another historical gem that is unique to Cincinnati. With the generous permission of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, we are proud to feature this image as a reminder of where we started, the depth of history in our area, and the progress that we have made as a community.
