Welcome to the new look Welsh Lookup Exhange pages. Although designed to cater for all Wales, there is at present no Lookup Exchange for the counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Caernarvonshire, Denbighshire and Flintshire). The Monmouthshire pages are also listed for completeness, though are hosted separately.
This site contains a list of reference material which volunteers are willing to search for specific entries. Despite its name you aren't required to 'exchange' anything and it's free. Requests should be specific: give as much detail as you can. Abuses of the kindness of volunteers may cause them to withdraw their names so please don't ask for all references to a common name, or for time-consuming research. If there are two volunteers against any item then only one should be approached at a time.
To ask for a look-up, please select the appropriate page from the list on the left, then click on the volunteer's name next to the item. This will take you to an encrypted page which lists the email addresses. The encryption is necessary to prevent spammers 'harvesting' the addresses. It also makes it impossible to copy and paste the address, so you will need to type in the address. Please give a subject of '(County Code) LE'
The encryption is unfortunately not Mac friendly, and Mac users will need to contact the web master to obtain the address of the volunteer. When requesting the address please quote the county and volunteer's name. The webmaster link (left) can be used from any page.
