Berkeley County West Virginia

Lookup Volunteers

       Note: The people listed below have graciously volunteered to look information up pertaining to Berkeley and surrounding counties. These people own or have access to these sources. Some sources are outside of Berkeley County, but are in counties from which Berkeley may have been formed and/or in nearby counties. Some tips when asking for a lookup:

    • Please do not expect these people to go to Berkeley County for you to find info.
    • Please be patient.  Many/most of these people have full time jobs besides genealogy.
    • Specify the book or resource name listed before the volunteer's name.
    • Be as specific as possible with the information on the person(s) you are researching.
    • Put BERKELEY COUNTY LOOKUP in your subject line (if you click on the person's name, that information should come up in your email message. If not, please include that since some resources list more than one county and many volunteers also do lookups for other counties).

    Thank you to our volunteers!  To volunteer, please contact me.

    To volunteer to do lookups in Berkeley County (or surrounding counties), send me a note. Please include Berkeley Lookups in your subject line since I maintain more than one county page. Your resources must include some information on people in Berkeley County, Virginia/West Virginia (or parent, surrounding or other counties carved from Berkeley; Even though they have separate webpages, it can't hurt to include them here especially for the beginning researchers). Thank you so much!

    Also, please notify me if you send to an address here and your message is returned. Don't give up on the first try; try again on another day. Temporary glitches or a full mailbox can cause one message to bounce. A repeated bounce, though, usually means the email address is not correct.
