Criteria for lookups:

1. I would like the subject line format to be "Lookup, Name of bio subject, Wright Co."

I ask that the email be in ASCII plain text format (No HTML). Check the URL in line 4 to see if the bio has all ready been posted.
3. I will email a digital photo as a *.JPG attachment of the relevant biographical sketch. The photos are about 30 to 40 Kb and most sketches require 2 to 4 photos. Note: Some email or antivirus programs are setup to reject *.JPG attachments. Please check yours. 

4. I ask that you transcribe and post the bio sketch to the Ancestry.com message board at:  Wright County Message board 
If the URL wraps, be sure to get everything between the < >.
5. These are not hard an fast rules. They do expedite the reply time.
