There is no shortage of Tallahatchie County References, but there is a shortage
of volunteers to do look-ups right now. If you own (or have access to) any
Tallahatchie County references (such as census, cemetery, marriage,
newspaper abstracts, etc.) and would be willing to do lookups for other
Tallahatchie County researchers, then please contact
me. Where we do have volunteers
lined up, please abide by these guidelines.
Limit your request to one name per request.
Please put TALLAHATCHIE COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your request
to insure the message is not overlooked or accidentally deleted.
In the first line of the message please put the name of the book from which
you are requesting the lookup.
Be patient. These volunteers do lookups on their own time and you are
probably not the only one to send a request. It may take several days
or longer if they have to go to a library to access the material.
