What surprises fell out when you '"shook" your family tree while looking for your ancestors? What are your descendants going to shake out, years from now, when they look for you???

I have listed some of the Russell County reference books that are available, although certainly not all. You can find them in libraries and bookstores. This list is here so you can do your own "lookups" for vital statistics and other information on your ancestors. If you own any Russell County books/microfilms/CDs please let me know. We are also looking for any vital statistics and cemetery information you may have for persons who were born, died, married, divorced, or are buried in the county (partial lists are welcome, too). As you can see, names of books and other research materials are needed!!!

Feel free to request information, from the submitter, about the book's author, publication date, publisher, ISBN#, etc. In the subject line put: RUSSELL CO LOOKUP BOOK, so it won't be overlooked in their email, and in the first line mention the book's name you wish information about. Please also put your email/postal address and your name at the end.

Note: When writing the submitter of this book's title, please don't forget to thank them for their time.

USGenWeb 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 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. Our lookups will extend to searching the book to determine if the book would be helpful to you in your research. Should the book prove useful, we can provide the authors address and ordering information. The USGenWeb Project will endeavor to get a WRITTEN statement from each copyright holder which stipulates which books may be used for lookups.

There have been many books about Russell County residents published.
Do you own any books, have some other county research information, and are willing to help others?
