[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.
More information can be found on the
Volunteer Page.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site.
We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

Berkeley County is the second oldest county in West Virginia.
It was created in 1772 from the northern third of Frederick County, Virginia and named for Norborne Berkeley, Baron de Botetourt, Colonial Governor of Virginia from 1768 to 1770. Due to its proximity to Washington, D.C., Berkeley County is the fastest growing county in the state in West Virginia.
