If I can be of assistance to you regarding  look-ups, please email. I am not a certified researcher. I will be glad to do “surface” research on your ancestor and/or help you with contact information on any of the county agencies.

Please limit look-ups to one individual, as one look-up may take an hour or so to confirm information if found. When submitting a request for a look-up, please include the following information:

  1. Ancestor’s last name in ALL CAPITAL letters and first name;
  2. What you are specifically looking for;
  3. Any other information that you have that may help such as middle name; date of birth, death, spouse, parents, location
  4. Valid email contact information

Resources are added frequently, please check out the Resource Links page and other pages on this website that may help with your research.

Many of McDowell County citizens have their roots in surrounding counties, one of which is Rutherford County where Bill’s Creek Baptist Church is located. A wonderful resource book by Helen Mason Lu of Dallas, Texas is “Bill’s Creek Baptist Church, Two Hundred Year History, 1782-1982″.

I am privileged to have a copy of this wonderful resource and even though this is tedious work that takes time, I will gladly do a look-up if you think your ancestor had connections with Bill’s Creek Baptist Church in Rutherford County.
