Montgomery County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers
I have listed some of the Montgomery County books that are available. If you own any Montgomery County books, whether listed or not, and will do look-ups, please let me know. As you can see, volunteers are needed.
Feel free to request a look-up from the following books. Please limit your request to one name per request. Please put MONTGOMERY County LOOKUP in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked or accidentally deleted. In the first line of the message please put the name of the book you are requesting the lookup in.
Thanks, Harry, Tracey, Dan, Diana, Marilyn, Mary Ellen and Rebecca for your help!!!
If you request a lookup, don't forget to thank your volunteer for their time.
Note: this list is pretty old so let me know if the e-mails bounce back :) Thanks, KZ
