Sussex Look-up Exchange

The following is a list of reference works on Sussex which volunteers are willing to search for specific entries. To ask for a look-up, please click on the name by the reference.

Important - Please read

To request a look-up, please click on the name by the reference. Include the words SUSSEX LOOK-UP in the subject line of your mail, and be very specific about the book or reference material. Many volunteers offer look-ups in a number of different books, across many counties, so the more specific you are, the more likely your request is likely to succeed! Remember that 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.

Many Family History Societies produce publications related to their county. You may want to consider purchasing your own copy of relevant resources to aid your research. Links to Sussex Family History Society publications can be found at: www.sfhg.org.uk/pubs.html
