NMPL has a great genealogy collection of approximately 2,000 volumes. Our resources predominantly cover the counties of Wetzel and Tyler in West Virginia and Monroe County Ohio.
We have Wetzel county newspapers on microfilm and many family histories relating to the area.
To enhance our genealogy services, the Library recently purchased the online database, Hertiage Quest. This resource gives you access to all of the U. S. Census microfilm for each census year and each state. Other information included in this database are family and county histories as well as some Revolutionary War materials. Anyone may use this database in the library. Those of you with a NMPL card may also access this information from home by logging onto our website @ http://newmartinsville.lib.wv.us/. Please call the Library at 455-4545 if there are any questions on how to use Heritage Quest. Enjoy.
