LOOK UPS:

RESTRICTIONS:

Volunteers will do look-ups, all they ask is that you send ONE name at a time,
with the date, spouse, etc...As much info as possible to assist volunteers in their search.
Thank You.

Please be careful not to violate copyright. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information provided by the volunteer 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 author's address and ordering information.
