Local History & Genealogy Collection

     The second floor of Waldomore houses the library’s research collections. The most notable of these is the Local History and Genealogy Collection which features materials focused on the region of North Central West Virginia, Harrison County, and Clarksburg.  The genealogical materials include records and information for the eastern panhandle, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

    The local history collection contains a variety of materials such as cookbooks, church histories, high school yearbooks, cemetery listings, obituaries, local authors, and much more. All of the materials in this collection can be found using the library catalog, just look for the call number beginning with the phrase WALDOMORE or ARCHIVES.

     Many of the genealogical materials in this collection have been provided through the generous support of the Harrison County Genealogical Society.
