The Jackson County WV Historical Society
The Jackson County Historical Society has been collecting information about Jackson County's past since the Society was established in 1969. Our plan is to include much of the information we have gathered on this website.
Browse our collection by clicking on menu on the left. We have more than 10,500 obituaries on the site and many articles on Jackson County history.
Interest in genealogy has taken a new insurgence with the popularity of DNA testing and the easy accessibility to information available on the internet. Here in the county we have access to some local sources not available elsewhere. Our genealogy group answers queries received through this website, by mail or through the local library.
