Arapahoe County Lookups & Volunteers

Return to Site Map


USGenWeb will not tolerate 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 the book is out of copyright, the lookup volunteer can supply as much information as they are willing to do so.

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.

If you own any Arapahoe County books and will do look-ups, please let me know. As you can see, volunteers are needed. Remember, those requesting lookups, as well as those volunteering, have ancestors who have walked in Arapahoe County at one time. Volunteering is a good way to find new information, new connections, and new cousins.

Feel free to request a look-up from the following resources. Please limit your request to one name per request. Please put ARAPAHOE COUNTY LOOKUP 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 lookup. Don't forget to thank your volunteer for his or her time.
