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 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.

Morgan County
Founded in 1820
County Seat:  Berkeley Springs
2007 Population: 16,351

Morgan County was formed in 1820 from parts of Hampshire and Berkeley Counties and named in honor of General Daniel Morgan, prominent soldier of the American Revolutionary War. The first English settlers in present-day Morgan County arrived during the 1730s. Because most of these early pioneers were "squatters", there is no record of their names. Historians claim that the first cabin in the county was built around 1745.
