Clark County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers

I have listed many of the Clark County books that are available, although certainly not all. If you own any Clark 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 CLARK 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.

If you request a lookup, don't forget to thank your volunteer for their time.
