Books We Own - User E-Mail Request Form

Using this form:

  1. The form below will help you format your look-up request, and will e-mail it automatically to the owner of the resource you have just selected.

  2. Please fill out the form completely, particularly those items marked [REQUIRED]. Missing or unclear information may well result in you receiving no answer to your request.

  3. Please make sure your return email address is correct - our lookup volunteers receive countless requests they are unable to fulfill because of invalid email addresses. It is YOUR responsibility to provide the correct email address. Provide the email address within your message, too, just to be sure.

  4. If your email service has a "whitelist" [where you accept emails only from those on an approved list] please add the lookup volunteer's email address to that whitelist - otherwise, they will not be able to respond to your request in a timely manner.

  5. Please note and follow any special instructions from the resource owner, whose information appears below.

  6. Please limit the number of surnames or resources you want looked up by any one owner. Many owners receive up to 300 e-mail messages per day. Since they are doing look ups as volunteers, it is important not to overuse their service.

  7. Be sure to notice whether the owner is requesting an SASE. If the owner is making copies of information and sending it to you, be sure to ask how much it will cost, so that you can reimburse the owner for his or her expenses.

  8. Please be sure to thank your lookup volunteer, whether or not they were able to locate your information. They are performing a valuable service - it is always nice to know their time and effort are appreciated.

I have an interest in History of United States Naval Fighting Ships. This is a hobby of mine, that I've grown into over the years. What I really enjoy doing is researching U.S. Navy Fighting Ships of WW I & II, and even prior to that period, compiling the information , and e-mailing the results to individuals that request the history. Of course I never charge for this service........."It is completly free". The material that I compile comes from several sources, of which I have no problem quoting such sources. I usually pull large amounts of material from the DANFS [Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships], this is intermixed with information that I attain from many of my own research manuals, web sites, and organizations that I belong to that share information between the attending members. I have sent many history request to many individuals on the web, so if you would like to check me out.....please do. Like I is all strings of "any" kind.

Bud's blog has more information on naval and merchant ships.
