The Clerks Office is where documents are filed; Deed Books, Deed of Trust Books, Wills and associated estate documents, Plat’s, Liens, Release’s, County Commission Minutes, and several other documents. The Clerks Office is also responsible for the preparing & tracking of the County Budget, Probating Estates, Payroll, paying bills and also conducting Elections and Voter Registration.  There is a link below for some information on qualifying to do an Estate, they are in pdf.

You will find links to the Auditor, Secretary of State & WV Code below and also another interesting site, our online records link.  Your browser may have security settings that will not let you open it . Read the instructions under the Disclaimer. CLICK THE HELP BUTTON and read the info.  Also play around with the "adv" button, it lets you filter your search.
 Some documents are not available for viewing, particularly because of soc sec numbers, if you do find a ss# please let us know so we can redact it, we try and do this as soon as possible after the documents come in.(note: this link replaces online county records.com)

YOU CAN NOW VIEW DEED BOOKS BACK TO BOOK "A"  & DEED OF TRUSTS BACK TO BOOK 37 (NOTE: we do NOT re-scan documents after the first recording scan)


 The online records site has been upgraded, you should now be able to access the site with safari and google chrome. (note: if safari will not open the tiff image, there is a box to check to change it to pdf)

The Courthouse will not be open on Saturdays. 

The Assessor has implemented a new GIS site, it  has overlayed the paper tax maps and other data onto some real world layers, this is a rough placement of the parcels and is "work in progress"  the benefit is to get the parcel info, it is not to be used or considered "official".  See the GIS link below, and "check" the "guest account" box.
The Assessor and County Clerk have also scanned some Land Books, 2001 thru 2009 (see link below) and are awaiting word on a grant to some more.
