==== Land =and Property Records ==={{WV Land Intro|Monongalia}}
Monongalia County Deeds were destroyed in a fire in the County Clerk's outbuilding in 1796. Many of the destroyed instruments were re-recorded in the now extant County Deeds (Old Series) and in the Monongalia County District Court Deeds. The latter series included mainly transactions conducted by out-of-County and out-of-State residents. As in most such records, many of the post-1796 deeds recited a chain of title.
Titles to Monongalia County lands were initially conveyed by the Commonwealth of Virginia mainly in right of settlement, although some speculators bought land warrants (rights to survey and claim grants to specific tracts) and resold them. No Monongalia County lands were granted pursuant to Revolutionary War Bounty Land Warrants. The Land Office's copies of all land grants issued by VA up to 1862 are available on the internet at the [http://www.lva.virginia.gov/siteIndex.asp Library of Virginia] (go to "Land Office Patents and Grants/Northern Neck Grants and Surveys" link to search). The County Clerk retains transcripts of the original land surveys, as well as original Land Entry Books (available on microfilm at [https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/show?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fcatalog-search-api%3A8080%2Fwww-catalogapi-webservice%2Fitem%2F63001 FHL]). The titles in right of settlement were allocated by a Commission for Adjusting Claims to Unpatented Lands 1773-1785; its minutes are retained by the County Clerk, and available on microfilm at [https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/show?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fcatalog-search-api%3A8080%2Fwww-catalogapi-webservice%2Fitem%2F63001 FHL] and in the West Virginia State Archives, Charleston.
