You may request copies of records from the County Clerk's Office.

Brooke County WV Courthouse Records

There is a $5.00 fee for each certified document requested, ($1.50 for a standard copy)
you should also send along a self addressed stamped envelope for the return of documents to you.

BIRTH Records - 1853 to the present
DEATH Records - 1853 to the present

MARRIAGE Records - 1853 to the present
(Early Birth, Death, & Marriage records are few and far between
as WV did not enforce county record keeping until 1904.)

WILLS - 1797 to the present
LAND DEEDS - 1797 to the present
(The charge is $1.50 each for the first two pages of a deed,
and $1.00 per page thereafter.)

There is also an interesting and early deed book regarding
Brooke Co., VA land that once belonged to Ohio Co., VA
predating 1797. It is entitled:
"Land Deeds of Ohio County, VA Pertaining to Brooke Co., VA(WV)".

And consider this little known Courthouse Book(s) for early land owners:
"Record Book of Surveys Made in Youghogania Co, VA 1780,
by William Crawford, Surveyor"
(One copy is handwritten with drawn maps of surveyed deeds,
the other is typewritten for easy reading.)

All of the above may be obtained from the county clerk at the same address.

If you are seeking information from divorce records,
please direct your request to the Circuit Clerk.
