Washington County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers

If you own any Washington County reference books or other materials, whether listed or not, and will do look-ups, please let me know. As you can see, more volunteers are needed.

Please read the following before asking for a lookup:

USGenWeb does not wish to be party to any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information given will be minimal, for example if it is a cemetery lookup, the information will be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone. Please do not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed; the volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests. If you feel there is enough material in the book to warrant it, you may ask the volunteer how you might purchase your own copy.

If you see a book or other materials listed for lookups for which you hold the copyright, and you do not want it used, please notify the county coordinator and it will be removed.


When requesting a lookup from one of our volunteers, please:
1. Include your 'snail mail' address in the inquiry.
2. Put "Washington County Lookup" in the subject line of your message.
3. Capitalize all surnames.

I am willing to assist in lookups from my resources for surnames HUITT and HEWITT. My ancestor, James HUITT, was an original pioneer of Missouri. Kevin L. Hewitt


I am willing to do lookups in any of the resources held by the Washington County Library. Please write to me at the following address:

Potosi, MO 63664

A donation to the Mine Au Breton Historical Society is requested in return for research. Donations may be included with the request, as I am the secretary for the Society.


I have a database with over 25,000 records of burials in more than 200 cemeteries in Washington County. These records are being improved constantly, thanks to the diligence and huge efforts of Mrs. Kay King, Mrs. Betty Brakefield and others.

Please include as much information as possible in your query. Larry Flesher
