If you would like to volunteer to do any lookups and/or footwork for others, please e-mail your county coordinator and it will be added to this page immediately.  There are many people out there who simply don't have the time or expertise to research or obtain records for their own family histories.

Shelby County Lookups

KYGenWeb Lookup Helps

If you would like to volunteer to do lookups from any resources you may have, please e-mail your county coordinator and it will be added immediately.  There is no better service to your fellow researchers than to help them find data  they need without leaving their home!


1. Please indicate the County and type of reference you are requesting.
1850 Shelby County Census Lookup

    2. Include first & last names, dates, places and any other information (name of spouse, siblings, nick names, etc.) that might help the volunteer in the lookup.  Please limit your requests to a few names at a time.

3. Please remember to thank the volunteer for his/her time and effort. The USGenWeb system is centered on volunteers who contribute their time and effort for free, which saves you a little legwork in your own research.  A thank you is always appropriate.

This site seeks to promote free genealogy on the web.   It is understood that most genealogical endeavors do include some fees associated with actually obtaining documents (cost of copies, agency charges, etc.).   However, with the help of Lookup volunteers, much information can be learned from others who may already have a certain publication or database.  Please feel free to volunteer your resources to others who may not have the ability to find the same records you have.    Volunteers are always needed to do lookups from Shelby County resources.
