Louisville, Jefferson County, KyGenWeb Project
If you would be willing to
volunteer to do lookups from any resources you may own, please e-mail your
county coordinator and it will be added to this page. There is no better
service to your fellow researchers than to help them find data they need
without leaving home!
Jefferson County Lookup Volunteers
Please indicate the County and type of reference you are
Example: 1850 Jefferson
County Census Lookup
Include first & last names, dates, places and any other information (name
of spouse, siblings, nick names, etc.) that might help the volunteer in
the lookup. Limit your requests to a few names at a time.
Please remember to thank the volunteer for his/her time and effort. The
USGenWeb system is centered on volunteers who contribute their time and
effort for free, which saves you a little legwork in your own research. A
is always appropriate.
This site seeks to promote
free genealogy on the web. It is understood that most genealogical
endeavors do include some fees associated with actually obtaining
documents. However, with the help of Lookup volunteers, much information
can be learned from others who may already have a certain publication or
database. Please feel free to volunteer your resources to others who may
not have the ability to find the same records you have. Volunteers are
always needed to do lookups from Jefferson County resources.
Rosie is presently
transcribing Kentucky Births for Jefferson County 1911-1999. If you need a
lookup for a surname you don't yet see online, feel free to have her look for
you. She has the CD for the entire state for this time period. She also has a
CD for Kentucky Marriages 1973-1999 and Kentucky Deaths 1911-1999, if you need
some of that data.
Kathy is offering to do lookups from a
book she has entitled "Jefferson County Wills & Estates 1838-1846" and another
one entitled "Kentucky Marriages 1797-1865". The latter book involves
marriages taken from 8 newspapers from around the Fayette County area. Many of
those who ended up here passed through that area first.
I will be able to do the following
lookups if you would like to add me as a volunteer. I just got a book for Christmas that might be helpful for someone. It's
called "Early Louisville Kentucky Newspaper Abstracts 1806-1828." It has an
index by name, and I'd be willing to do lookups on specific first AND last
names. The book is compiled by Lola Frazer Crowder and was published by the
Frontier Press, Galveston, 1995. I'm no expert on Jefferson County genealogy,
and haven't had much luck looking for my ancestors there, but maybe this will
