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 relevant resources to aid your research.You may also wish to consider supporting research in this area by joining the society of your research. Details can be found at their respective web-sites or see Genuki's Family History Society listings.

The following is a list of reference works on Lincolnshire 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: give as much detail as you can. 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. Volunteers may or may not be willing to obtain copies of the relevant pages. If they are, expect to reimburse expenses.

To ensure that your message receives prompt attention please use the words Lincs Lookups in your subject line. Many volunteers work on several projects at once and it can be hard for them to try and guess which one you are responding to. Failure to do so could result in your request being overlooked.


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