Because of its location, Berkeley County, Virginia was a natural magnet for migration and a focal point of westward expansion. The bulk of Berkeley County's early records--including its marriage records--can be found today in the courthouse in Martinsburg, West Virginia. The present work is a digest of the Berkeley marriage records for the entire period from 1781 through 1854. It is arranged in alphabetical order by the names of both brides and grooms and contains the records of nearly 6,000 marriages. At least 15,000 persons are mentioned in this work, not counting ministers.
