Staffordshire Look-up Exchange

 

The following is a list of reference works on Staffordshire 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, PLEASE  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 (blanket) references to a common name, or for time-consuming research, or for dates outside the ranges listed. Volunteers may or may not be willing to obtain copies of the relevant pages. If they are, expect to reimburse expenses. Please quote 'Staffs Look-up Exchange' in the subject line and the NAME of the record you wish to be searched.


IMPORTANT:
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A FREE SERVICE FOR WHICH VOLUNTEERS GIVE THEIR SPARE TIME. WE DO NOT HAVE THE TIME OR RESOURCES TO CARRY OUT GENERAL RESEARCH FOR ENQUIRERS.
FAILURE TO OBSERVE THE ABOVE MAY LEAD TO YOUR REQUEST BEING UNANSWERED. WE HAVE LOST VOLUNTEERS DUE TO THE EXCESSIVE NUMBER OF 'BLANKET' AND UNREASONABLE REQUESTS RECEIVED. PLEASE HELP US TO HELP YOU.
