  jigsawA Look-up Request is a list of resources owned/accessed by individuals who are willing to look-up genealogical information and e-mail or snail mail it to others who request it. This is a free Volunteer service, unless expenses such as postage and copier fees are required. Resource owners are Volunteers with a limited amount of time and resources to spend looking up information.

How Do I Request a Look-up?

How Do I Request a Look-up?

Send an email message to the Look-up Volunteer

Include at least the word LOOKUP in the subject line of the email

In the email, include the Title of the resource. Please do not expect the Volunteer to look in every resource they own with one request - most people just don't have that much free time. The "Resources" (books, census, publications, photo's, etc.) can be found below.

Be sure to include as much information as you can about the ancestor for whom you are requesting the lookup (full names, maiden names, parents, dates, etc.). Please, no requests for "All of the Smith's...".

Limit to one request per person per week

Researchers should not ask, nor may lookup volunteers offer, to violate copyright laws when responding to requests for lookups in any copyrighted material. See copyright laws.

~ Return the favor by Volunteering to do Look-up's from your reference material ~

— Please remember that these generous Volunteers are giving up their own personal time to help you. They are not paid in any way. —

Volunteers are required to read the USGenWeb Project Info for Volunteers - Copyright Information and the WVGenWeb Rules for Lookups

It would be appropriate to follow-up on all requests. If you will not be able to perform the Look-up within a reasonable period of time, let the requestor know a timeframe when they can expect the information. Perhaps they can request it from another Volunteer, if necessary.

Any reference material can be used: books, newspapers, magazines, articles, CD's, etc.
