WASHINGTON COUNTY LOOKUPS

* What is a Lookup? A Lookup is when a person volunteers to look in a book or CD that they own for a name or information
* Who does lookups? Volunteers who own a book or CD they think may be of some help. The volunteer may never have set foot in the location in question.
* What a lookup is not: Lookup volunteers are not offering to do General Research. 

Please don't ask for every possible kind of lookup or our volunteers will run away!

Clara Berry I have some information from some of the Washington Co. Tax Rolls (mostly HAIR, BERRY & HIXON related) and a "Poor Children" List is included with this from Strabane/North Strabane Twp with various names on it. I have some wills & land transactions (All that I have is BERRY, HAIR & HIXON related of Washington Co., PA, late 1700's and foreword & all from courthouse records that I've researched myself.)

I also have a book titled "Biographical and Historical Catalogue of Washington and Jefferson College, containing A General Catalogue of Jefferson College and of Washington and Jefferson College, including thus all the Alumni of The Present College, 1802-1889" - it was compiled and published in 1889. It's an old and fragile book.  

LIMIT 2 SURNAMES PER REQUEST FROM THE W&J COLLEGE CATALOGUE
