Lookup Volunteers

    The people listed below have graciously volunteered to look information up pertaining to Jefferson County, West Virginia.  They own or somehow have access to these sources.

Some tips when asking for a lookup:

  • Do NOT expect these people to "go" to Jefferson County for you to find info.
  • Be patient.  Many/most of these people have full time jobs in addition to their interest in genealogy.
  • Specify the book or resource name.
  • Be specific in the person(s) you are researching.  (Don't ask for all the SMITH's in Jefferson)
  • Put JEFFERSON COUNTY LOOKUP in your subject line, or it might get deleted.
  • Be aware there can be small charges for postage and copying to send you the info.
  • Lookups should follow Copyright Laws

Thank you to our volunteers!  To volunteer, let me know

These are people with the genealogy World Family Tree disks who have volunteered their time to do lookups if you know on which CD your surnames are included. There are instructions on the site about how to locate trees in which your surname appears — do not expect the volunteers to do that research for you. Once you have the CD numbers you need, click on the name of someone with the CD you need and follow the rules of the site.
