Rules for Lookup Volunteers

Volunteers may do unlimited lookups if (and only if):

  1. The lookup volunteer is the actual author and copyright holder of the publication.

  2. The lookup volunteer is using primary source documents ... whether they are trekking to the courthouse or using their own xeroxed copies of public domain documents.
  3. The lookup volunteer has written permission from the author / copyright holder to use their publication for lookups


Rules for Lookup Requests

To request a lookup from any of the references, click on the name of the owner and ask them politely. Remember, they are volunteers so they don't have to do this. Please remember to say thank you to the volunteer.

Mention the name of the book/source in your message. Our volunteers aren't mind-readers & they may not remember which books they volunteered for. Make your requests for lookup limited in scope. (example: "Tell me everything about the Smiths" is probably too broad.)

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