SHROPSHIRE LOOK-UP EXCHANGE

bookpile.gif

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST -

The following is a list of reference works on Shropshire which volunteers are willing to search for specific entries. To ask for a look-up, please click on the name by the reference. Requests should be specific - do not ask for general research. Abuses of the kindness of these volunteers will probably cause them to withdraw their names so please don't ask for all references to a common name, or for time-consuming research. Don't expect volunteers to have access to any document or reference other than those listed by their name.

If you are new to The Look-up Exchange or unfamiliar with the records of the British Isles please visit the help page for vital information. Not only will you find the material extremely informative, but it will help you avoid wasting your own time, and that of our volunteers, on fruitless searches. The more you know, and the more specific you can be, the better we can help you. Blanket requests will almost certainly be met with "I'm sorry but...." Help us to help you - BE SPECIFIC.

PLEASE DO NOT ASK LOOK UP VOLUNTEERS FOR GENERAL SEARCHES OF RECORDS THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE ON THEIR LISTS. THANK YOU

** Please quote Salop Look-up in the subject line, and say which document you wish to be searched.** 
Many volunteers have documents covering more than one county.

Many volunteers have documents covering more than one county.

 

Many of the sources used for these lookups are the result of the dedication and hard work of a Family History Society. Many Family History Societies produce publications related to their county. You may want to consider purchasing your own copy of relevent resources to aid your research. Some Societies sell their publications on-line, and can be found on their webpages. Another useful source of publications can be found at Genfair - the online family history fair . You may also wish to consider supporting research in this area by joining the society. Details can be found at their respective web-sites or see: FFHS Members List .
