[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.

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
