Library Lookup Service

If you can't make it to the Library, volunteers at the Green Valley Genealogical Society Library will look up specific information for people who cannot get to the library when it is open for patron visits (Tuesday and Wednesday, 9AM-2PM). Please understand that we will look up specific information in specific books or CDs that are in our library. We do lookups, not research, which can be quite time consuming.

An example of a typical lookup request is: Please look in the “Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots Vol. 1 A-D” by Patricia Law Hatcher for information about Kimber Barton who served in the Revolutionary War in Virginia. I would like to have a copy of the title page and page or pages containing information about Kimber Barton.

One of our volunteers will do the lookup when the library is open and if anything is found, the requested pages will be scanned and emailed to the requestor.

An example of a lookup request that will NOT be honored is: Please lookup John Smith in your book collection. A request like this is not specific enough and falls into the category of time consuming research.

Please email your lookup request to Library Lookup Committee chairwoman Laura Hughes. You will receive an acknowledgment of your request followed by the results of the lookup when it has been completed.
