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 June 2016 – October 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. **
