Northumberland Look-up Exchange

The following is a list of reference works on Northumberland 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 Co-ordinator 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 Family History Societies produce publications related to their county. You may want to consider purchasing your own copy of relevent resources to aid your research. 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
