Q: I am working on a family tree and I’ve recently learned my father’s family lived and was born in and around Ohio. I suspect we might have ties to the Amish. Do the Amish keep ancestral records? How might I go about finding out if any of my ancestors were Amish?
~ Toni Moore
A: The Amish do keep ancestral records. I don’t have any advice for you on how to find out whether or not you had any Amish ancestors other than just tracing and researching your family tree.
