Genealogy and History
This Site is Available for Adoption
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.
We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and
are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are
interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our Volunteer Page for further
information and then contact Kim.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

Founded in 1820.
County Seat: Berkeley Springs
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.
