There exists a facility in Morgantown, WV that can be of immense help to the person doing genealogical or historical research. This facility is a repository for a large variety of varied information. This selection covers most everything from the states' best collection of newspapers on microfilm to a large selection of individual diaries. The personnel are very helpful and more than willing to assist area researchers. This place may hold the treasure of information you are looking for. The building is comfortable and perfectly suited for research. If there is an area of weakness it is the severe lack of parking. It is best to use the facility during the summer months when the student population is at its lowest point. I feel that you will find the facility and staff to be of tremendous help.
