West Virginia Obituary Records

If you are using the mighty power of the Internet to find West Virginia obituaries, you are in luck. The online world is the most likely place to find the listings you are looking for, even though there are only a few small time organizations that have their information online. You can start your search for West Virginia obituary records by heading to the website for Columbia County GenWeb. GenWeb is one of the largest sites of its kind in the country. It is dedicated to listing genealogy information from all over the country so that family members can trace their family tree. The Columbia County site features listings from the Columbus Republican Journal Newspaper and has a large number of current and past listings, as well as ones from as far back as the turn of the last century. There is also a much larger and more comprehensive West Virginia USGenWeb site that has information from the rest of the state. Here you can browse a wide array of reader submitted listings. You can also check the various websites for all of the major and minor newspapers throughout the state and many local library systems also have searchable archives online, as well.
