Lookup Volunteers

This page contains a list of folks who are willing to help you with your research. Some have materials on hand while others are willing to visit local research facilities such as the County Clerk or libraries on your behalf. Please be sure to thank them for their assistance.

Please be considerate when sending your lookup request: no more than one or two names; provide enough information for a positive identification; and allow plenty of time for a response. Put the name of the book or other identifying information in the subject line to help prioritize messages. NOTE: Library lookups are generally only offered to persons outside of the St. Clair County area, who cannot travel to do the research themselves. Please do not request a library lookup if you live in the area and are capable of visiting a library yourself; our volunteers' time is every bit as valuable as your own. Visit your libraries, you'll be surprised what you find there.

If you have books, CD-ROMs or other resources, or live in St. Clair County and are willing to do simple lookups at local libraries to assist other researchers, please contact the county coordinator to volunteer your services. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated!

It may be the case that some of these email addresses no longer exist. Unfortunately, in such instances, I have no better information so please don't email me with a request for an update or corrected email address as you will only get a quick note of regret in return. I only know if an email address changes if volunteers inform me of a change and I then promptly update this page.

Genealogy Look Up Forum is a website of volunteers who will do various types of genealogical look ups for those researching their family history. Please check our website out and bookmark it for future references. We also get new volunteers added weekly, so please keep checking back for new volunteers. The site even has a genealogy chat room with look up volunteers and very helpful chat members.


Family Tree Maker "World Family Tree" CDs: Family Tree Maker's "World Family Tree" CD collection, disks 1 through 22. These CDs contain family genealogies sent to Broderbund Software for inclusion in the series. Debbie is willing to look up surnames on them. Please keep your requests to one or two surnames each time, and allow her time to get to your request and respond.

Nancy ~

  • 1910 St. Clair County census Include in your request what city or township the ancestors were in, along with surname and first names of everyone you think may be there.  If the look-up is for Port Huron City, include the ward number (1, 2, 3, etc.).  The CD is indexed only by city or township and not by surname.  It is actual copies of the original census so there is the possibility of missing some due to poor writing.  

  • Plot book to Rosehill Cemetery in East China Twp. I would be very glad to help or to look up information in this book.

1894 Census - Port Huron Twp ~ The index is now posted for Port Huron Township. If you would like someone looked up, just email me with the names and page numbers.
