Guidelines for Lookup Volunteers
Volunteers may do unlimited lookups if:

  • The volunteer is the actual author and copyright holder of the publication.
  • The volunteer is using primary source documents ... whether making a trip to the courthouse or using their own photocopies of public domain documents.
  • The volunteer has written permission from the author / copyright holder to use their publication for lookups.

Volunteers may be able to make certain limited scope lookups in copyrighted publications under the "fair use" provisions of existing law.

Potential volunteers are encouraged to review the explanations of copyright protection, especially the "fair use" provisions. Here are two links to help you: USGenWeb and US Copyright Office.
