Lookup Volunteers

(two volunteers listed at the VERY bottom)

If you own any Linn County reference books or other materials, whether listed or not, and will do look-ups, please let me know. Volunteers are needed.

Please read the following before asking for a lookup: USGenWeb does not wish to be party to any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two, if 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 you feel there is enough material in the book to warrant it, you may ask the volunteer how you might purchase your own copy.

If you see a book or other materials listed for lookups for which you hold the copyright, and wish it removed from the list, please notify the County Coordinator.



When requesting a lookup from one of our volunteers, please:
  1. Include your 'snail mail' address in the inquiry.
  2. Put "Linn County, MO Lookup" in the subject line of your message.
3. Capitalize all surnames.


If you have any of the following, PLEASE volunteer to do lookups !!!
