CHESHIRE LOOK UP EXCHANGE

***!!Volunteers Urgently Needed!!***
Can you help?

Please e-mail Kaye if you are willing to add your name to this list.  

This list can only be successful with your generous help and co-operation.


Give the full titles of any reference you are prepared to check. Suitable items would include tax lists, electoral rolls, directories, census indexes, parish registers, memorial inscriptions, etc., etc.

 

Please advise of any broken or outdated links.  Thanks.

The following is a list of reference works on Cheshire which volunteers are willing to search for specific entries. To ask for a look-up, please click on the name by the reference. Requests should be specific: give as much relevant detail as you can, without telling your full story with subsequent irrelevant detail. Abuses of the kindness of these volunteers will probably cause them to withdraw their names so please don't ask for all references to a common name, or for time-consuming research, or for dates outside the ranges listed. Volunteers may or may not be able to obtain copies of the relevant pages. If they are, expect to reimburse expenses.  "Blanket" requests (e.g. "any baptisms in the name of SMITH"!) will almost certainly be met with "I'm sorry but....".  Help us to help you - BE SPECIFIC.

To ensure that your message receives prompt attention please use the words Cheshire Look-ups in your subject line and quote the source you would like the volunteer to look at. Many volunteers work on several projects at once and it can be hard for them to try and guess which one you are responding to. Failure to do so could result in your request being overlooked.

Many of the sources used for these lookups are the result of the dedication and hard work of a Family History Society. Many Family History Societies produce publications related to their county. You may want to consider purchasing your own copy of relevant resources to aid your research. You may also wish to consider supporting research in this area by joining the society or volunteering to do look ups yourself.
