Lookup Volunteers
Before requesting a lookup from a volunteer, please read the following:
USGenWeb does not wish to be party to 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. If you feel there is enough material in the book to warrant it, you may ask the volunteer how you might purchase your own copy.

If you see a book or other materials listed for lookups for which you hold the copyright, and you do not want it used, please notify the county coordinator and it will be removed.

With your request, please:

Include your "snail mail" address
Put "Franklin County Lookup" in the subject line
Capitalize or bold all surnames



I will do volunteer lookups from the following resources: Family TreeMaker CD's; the Boeuf Township Cemetery Book; New Haven, the Early Years; and an extended family history on the Dysons of Franklin County (including the surnames of: Roby, Gaither, Gatton, & Mays who migrated from NC to the MO/IL area) and their descendants.  LeRoyce Bratsveen


Johann Andreas Scheible family that settled near Bethany church in western edge of the county. My sister and I are the editors and copyright holder. Louise Scheible Godwin



I have two books, Goodspeed's 1888 History of Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Crawford and Gasconade Counties, Missouri and Missouri Genealogical Records & Abstracts Vol. 4: 1741-1839 by Sherida Eddlemon. The books are fully indexed but I would ask a limit of three surnames, and first names as well.

 Yvonne Bowers


I'll be glad to do lookups for cemeteries in the Calvey, Central, Prairie, and Boles Township cemetery books.
Kathy Fisher

If you have Franklin County research resources and would like to volunteer to do lookups, please contact Sue Blesi.
