We're looking for DATA for this site!!!

We're looking for the "raw data" folks can use to build their family trees (rather than the actual trees themselves). This includes the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between.


We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for you.
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.

Formed in 1776, the county takes its name from the Monongahela River.
The name Monongalia is commonly believed to be a misspelling of Monongahela, while others suggest that Monongalia simply means "Land of the Monongahela", as in Arabia, Bolivia or Columbia. The true origin is unknown.

The county seat is at Morgantown
