Braxton County Family Research Library

The BCFRL is located in the basement of the Gassaway Community Building in Gassaway, WV. The library is open on Friday evenings from 6-9. In case of inclement weather, the library will be closed. The library contains census records, death records, marriage records, and some obituaries from Braxton and surrounding counties. In addition to these records, the library also has histories of some of the local families, which were donated by the descendants. They also have various books on the history of the area, which are helpful to the genealogist. The library helped to publish the Heritage of Braxton County in 1995 and is currently working on compiling a list of all the cememteries in Braxton County. They hope to publish the cemetery book soon. The BCFRL is a non-profit organization completely run by volunteers. Only a limited amount of research can be done by the volunteers for a donation. These donations are used to purchase new materials for the library. Send correspondence to: Braxton County Family Research Library---805 State Street---Gassaway, WV 26624.
