If you have access to a courthouse, library, archive, genealogical books, etc. dealing with Waukesha County and would be willing to do lookups for others, please contact me.
When asking for a lookup, please limit yourself to one or two names. Remember that the people that offer are doing this on their own time.(and are not getting paid for it). Let's not overburden them or they will no longer enjoy helping. And a big heartfelt "Thank You" goes a long way.
