The prime objectives of The First Families of Warren County, Ohio, are to identify and honor the memory of the earliest pioneers of the county, and to show the proved pioneer's lasting mark on the county they helped develop, by honoring their descendants.

The research and work necessary to discovering the pioneers and their descendants is intended to foster and encourage increasing interest in the people who contributed in any way - great or small - to establishing the county, and in its customs, culture, genealogy and history.
