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 tips when asking for a lookup:

    • Do NOT expect these people to go to Berkeley County for you to find info.
    • Be patient.  Many/most of these people have full time jobs besides genealogy.
    • Specify the book or resource name.
    • Be specific in the person(s) you are researching.
    • Put BERKELEY COUNTY LOOKUP in your subject line.

    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. Your resources must include information on people in Berkeley County, Virginia/West Virginia, at some time in their lives. Thank you!

    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.
