Hi, I'm Melanie, and I am your webmaster for the Ohio History
Network's Darke County Page. Please come in and browse,
hopefully you'll find what you've been looking for.
It was brought to my attention months ago that I should have
my photo posted on this page so that everyone who comes here

research. If you have information you would like

find you an answer. If I cannot provide you with the help you
need, then I will make an attempt to forward your request to
someone who may be able to help you.
