The Labus family of the Minerva OH branches

Updated December 30, 2002

About Our Family Research


I am current ly researching the Labus name from the Stark county Ohio, Minerva areas involving Paris, Brown, Harrison townships. This time period also includes carroll and maybe a small portion of Tuscarawas counties. The boundaries of the area were changing quite a bit in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Records are hard to come by because of changing laws about birth/death and marriage records.I'm just learning of where some of these records can be located. Oral family histories are basically non-existant because there is only one person left that could provide such incites and he either doesn't remember, or doesn't want to. I seem to be the oldest one left now who is interested in preserving this information for future generations and I think of it as a necessary duty to pass our history on to our children because with every new generation so very much of our ancestors skills and knowledge of personal survival and accomplishments are lost to us forever. These people really were the heroes of our nation. They fought the hardest battle of all "Mother Nature". I intend to name those hard working people and seek out some of the "old time ways" of doing things as well as survival tactics, recipes and maybe a few tall tails of those good old days. Feel free to contact me or just join the page.....I'd like to see that "The Good Times" aren't really over for good.
