I am happy to do lookups for anyone searching for records in the D.C. Metro Area (DC, MD, VA). I often travel to southern Arkansas/Louisiana to visit family and can often make time to stop at local courthouses to do lookups there. I have a fairly sizable personal genealogy library and will gladly scan and send PDFs.
** Note regarding availability: My availability will be limited for traveling look ups from May 2016 - July 2016. If you submit a request during this time I will do my best to get back to you in a timely fashion regarding the time it will take to process look ups. This does not affect my personal genealogical library. **
Augusta County, Staunton, Waynesboro, Rockingham County, and Harrisonburg Virginia. I can also travel to Highland County and Nelson County, Virginia
I will go to local libraries and cemeteries. I have an account with Ancestry so can also do some research online. Courthouses are difficult for me to do research in, due to my work schedule...Could potentially get info there, if I have a day off during the week. I'm based in Augusta County but am willing to travel to surrounding areas, including Highland and Nelson.
