Orange County, Texas: 

Reference Materials and Volunteers


If you own materials, and are willing to do searches, please email me  Barbara Dore with the information. Feel free to request a look-up from the following resources. Please limit your request to one name per request. Please put ORANGE COUNTY SEARCH in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked or accidentally deleted. In the first line of the message please put the name of the book from which you are requesting the search. 

If you request a search, don't forget to thank your volunteer for their time. 

: The USGenWeb Official Policy USGenWeb will not tolerate any 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. The USGenWeb Project will endeavor to get a WRITTEN statement from each holder which stipulates which books may be used for lookups.
