My name is Katy Hestand and I am your County Coordinator.  I would really like to see the Cumberland County site grow and I need your help to do that.  I don't live in the area, so I can't run down to the Courthouse to get a record for the site or researcher.  It makes me feel bad when somebody asks, so please don't.  I am looking for local researcher's, so if you are available to do lookups or research in the area, please contact me.  I am also accepting contributions for the site.  My e-mail address is [email protected] 

Below are the subjects that I would like information about.  They are linked if said information is available, otherwise the the index is ready to be attached when I get the information. 

I would like to thank all of the previous Coordinator's for their excellent work on the site.  There is a lot of information already here.  I would like to see more photo's and copies of vital records, which you very well may have in your files.  Please be mindful of the living, I don't wish to invade anybodies privacy.

Help me link the rest of the pages, please send your submissions to [email protected] If you have a website that relates to Cumberland County, I will be happy to link it.   The new site isn't quite done yet, I am still researching places to stay for your research trips and looking for a listing of publications to help you find what you are looking for.  Your help would be greatly appreciated, so if you have information that will help other researchers and myself complete our quests, I really want to hear from you.
