Craighead County Lookups and Resources

If you have a book on Craighead County and it is either in the public domain or you have permission from the author or publisher to do lookups in it, please let me know.

The USGenWeb Project will not tolerate any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information given should be minimal, for example:

If it is a cemetery lookup, the information should be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone.
If someone asks for everybody with X surname or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed, please advise that The USGenWeb Project volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests.

Lookups can extend to searching the copyrighted material to determine if the material would be helpful to the requester in their research. Should the copyrighted material prove useful, the volunteer can provide the author's address and ordering information.

Please assist our researchers by putting CRAIGHEAD COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject of your email.
Place the name of the resource, as well as the names you want to lookup in the body of the email. Don't forget to thank them!
