Jefferson County Genealogists & Footwork Specialists

  If you would like to volunteer to do any 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.

Jefferson County Researchers

This site seeks to promote free genealogy on the web.   However, it is also aware that many persons do not have the time, expertise or the inclination to work on their own family histories.  This page is provided to assist those seeking professional help in completing their trees, or simply needing someone in the area to do some footwork to find a record to document data they have already learned.  This page is listed with the knowledge that these persons charge a fee for their services.  Please check out the web pages and/or email the researcher for more details on services provided and fees charged.  Please let the researcher know if his or her services were of assistance to you.   The coordinator of this site would also like feedback, so as to know whether or not to continue to recommend a particular researcher.  Email me with your experiences.
