West Virginia Genealogy

My genealogy research starts in West Virginia since both of my parents were born and raised there. In addition to my parents, a few more¬†generations back from me also involve this area of the country. I’m accumulating a lot of detailed information about it. Libraries and other places to look only carry each of us so far in our hunt for family connections, so I share what I find here in case someone else can use it. Explore the resources on this page and throughout my website:


  • Free files to explore and download
  • A blog category devoted to West Virginia Genealogy and further sorted into cities, counties, old coal mining towns and communities.
  • A robust group of fellow researchers on Facebook in my West Virginia Genealogy Group. Over 4,000 members!
