Look Ups


USGenWeb's Official Policy

   USGenWeb will not tolerate any copyright violations.
Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple.  Information given 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 authors address and ordering information.
  Please don't forget to thank these volunteers for donating their time to helping with your research.  If you have a book or material in which you would be willing to do lookups for other people in, email me and I will add you to this list.  See the  USGenWeb's Official Lookups Policy for more information.   
Thank you for your interest in this project!
