The following is a list of reference works on CUMBERLAND 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.
I am the Owner of this Look-up Exchange Page not a volunteer and so, therefore cannot offer any research help to you. For this reason please do not send requests to me personally. Thank you.

Many of the sources used for these lookups are the result of the dedication and hard work of a family history society. Many societies produce publications related to their county. You may want to consider purchasing your own copy of relevant resources to aid your research. Links to all known on-line publication lists can be found at Family History Society On-Line Catalogues. 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 Genuki's Family History Society listings.
NOTE: When making a request, please indicate which item you would like to have looked up, eg 1881 Census Index for Cumberland, as many of the lookup volunteers do lookups for several counties and several items, and often they are not sure exactly which item you have in mind.
