Mifflin County Genealogy Project
Lookups & Research Services
The volunteers listed here have offered to do lookups.
Please remember that a lookup means checking a particular source for a specific person. It does not mean doing research. Example: "I'm trying to find out where John Jones is buried. He lived in Lewistown in 1880 and doesn't appear in the 1900 census. Could you please look for him in your cemetery book?"
Please remember to tell them what you already know, so they don't their waste time finding that information.
Please remember to provide them with specific details: Example: "I'm trying to find a marriage record for John Jones and Mary Smith, who appear in the 18xx census with two kids aged 5 and 7."
Please remember only to ask for one lookup per email, unless you're looking for two specific individuals in the same book.
Please remember never, ever, to ask two people for the same request. Lookup volunteers do communicate with one another, and have been known to quit because of this deplorable practice.
Please remember to thank the volunteer for his/her trouble, even if the information isn't in the source. The thanks is for their work, not the result.
Please let me know if any email link is no longer valid.

Note~ Several of the resources the people here are sharing have been published by members of the Mifflin County Historical Society~ many of which really don't cost very much less than your average paperback. The Society has been going on since 1921. Their access to local records and continued contributions have made headway for many out-of-town researchers - if not you then maybe someone who has shared info with you along the way. Although I live in VA, when I traveled to Mifflin County, the volunteers there were very helpful and spent hours working with me and helping me make the most of my limited time. For a reasonable fee, the Society's experienced volunteers will do the groundwork for you so that you needn't travel to PA. Please consider purchasing sources and services from the Historical Society. ~ Cynthia Rosenberry
