The Belmont County District Library offers the genealogy researcher resources and services to help with family history research. The main library in Martins Ferry has a Local History and Genealogy collection that includes books, online data, clippings, microfilm and an obituary file. We also subscribe to the following databases:
|Ancestry Library Edition
(In-library use only)
|HeritageQuest (Access from home with your 14 digit library barcode)|
We offer an obituary research service for those who are not local or prefer paying for obituary lookups. Let us do the research for you and you pay a small fee of $3.00 per obituary.
