The Jackson County Genealogy Society meets regularly to work on family genealogy with one another, share resources, plan trips and special events. The genealogy society was the catalyst for the publication of Jackson County Past & Present Volume II and the formation of the Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter in 2011. The genealogy society is also an integral part of the Jackson County Historical Society.
We are also working on entering additional obits to our site and scanning books and family information, gathered by the Historical Society, to be published on this website. Valuable information has been donated to the Historical Society over many years and we hope to upload it in the near future. Exciting things are happening for family tree makers whose roots begin in Jackson County, West Virginia.
