When requesting a lookup, please place "Pierce County Lookups" in the subject line of your message.  Please do not ask for blanket searches for a surname and limit your request to 3 surnames per lookup.  Also, as some volunteers have more than one book or resource, please tell them which you would like your look up from.   And don't forget to thank your volunteer for their time, they are doing this as a service to you and I, myself, would like to let them know how much their hard work and time is appreciated.   Their efforts are going a very long way to making this one of the best genealogy websites on the net.  Thank you. 

if you have any books regarding the history of Pierce County, it's settlers and their descendants from which you would be willing to do genealogical research, please e-mail me at riverfallshistory@yahoo.com and I will gladly add you to this list.
