Nicholas County, WV Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce Records

Nicholas County vital recordsNicholas County birth records are non-public and obtainable only after 100 years have passed; for death and marriage records, the time limit is 50 years. Records of this sort are available for 1917—present from West Virginia's Health Statistics Center, usually for $12. The Nicholas County Clerk provides birth, death, marriage, and divorce records before 1917. Nicholas County was initially created in 1818 from Greenbrier, Kanawha, and Randolph Counties, but disputed boundaries were resolved in 1820; it was named for Virginia Governor Wilson Cary Nicholas, commander of General George Washington's life guard during the Revolution and a county landowner who assisted in forming the county.
