You might want to check with the Ohio Historical Society Archives (which,
apparently, by state law, is the archives for the State of Ohio).
If they cannot take the records, perhaps they can assist you in finding a
new home them.

Good morning listers:
I could use some advise please. It has come to my attention that the Probate
Court here in Wayne County, Ohio is going to destroy early probate files.
They have been filmed. They have been stored, I believe, at the County
Administration Building; however, the County Administrator has said they
have got to go. The local historical society and library have both said they
have no place to store them, so they won't take them. The court evidently
won't let them go to a private party for storage.
Any ideas / suggestions as to what can be done would be appreciated.
