The Wetzel County Ancestry, Genealogy, and History pages provide resources useful when building your family tree. Focusing upon county (court, land, and tax), church records (baptism, marriage) and other source material (i.e. naturalization and war records) will help you build your family tree. Additional information comes from archives, cemeteries, museums, or local societies. And since we also enjoy history we are striving to uncover useful information about the pioneers, points of interest, and towns that were part of early settlement activity and the surnames that were found in these areas.
Content provided begins with general ancestry, history, and genealogical information. We add our special European focus towards the Danish, German, Irish, Swedish pioneers, exploration, and settlement activity. Nothing would be complete if we didn't add a bit more specialty information regarding immigrants and their historical achievements they made while settling parts of America.
West Virginia Ancestry and History
Wetzel County West Virginia
While we are presenting data about each state and county, some of these counties have limited resources available, and there are also over 3000 counties. Our efforts are going to take time. We have also found that there are always specific areas where discussions would help resolve lingering questions. We are providing the West Virginia GoAncestry Genealogy Forum where you can interact with others that have an interest in state ancestral research. If you are wondering about something that isn't answered on the state or county pages, we hope you will ask a question there.
We enable visitors to browse content and experience many of the features available on the website. Membership is free and increases access to even more ancestry information! We hope you will join this growing ancestry and genealogy community.
