Your West Virginia Genealogy "Clues from the News!"


This special section of The Olden Times features old newspaper articles from or about West Virginia and West Virginia families. 

PLEASE NOTE: If the newspaper or article was published before West Virginia became a state, you will find the article indexed on my Virginia pages. I am in the process of getting them indexed on the WV pages as well, but you might want to check in both areas, just in case!

You'll find old news articles, obituaries, birth & marriage announcements, ads and more. See the links at the top of this page to go to the Index of Names, to search this site or to take a look at the site map.

Each of these was scanned from an original issue of an old newspaper in my personal collection. They appear in the order in which they were added to this website. Be sure to check for archived stories, since I move them from this page to the Archives periodically.
