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 am also happy to stop at local courthouses to do lookups there. I have a fairly sizable personal genealogy library that I'm happy to scan and send PDFs of the pages from.
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.
