Your West Virginia Genealogy "Clues from
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.
