Instructions

These Look-up requests guidelines need to be followed:

  1. IMPORTANT: Mansfield Look-up must be the subject. Many volunteers receive 100s of E-mail messages daily from genealogy mail lists, online services, etc.  Most of the time only subject lines are scanned. If it contains nothing of interest for the volunteer, the E-mail may be trashed without being read. Some volunteers have setup filters to automatically send Look-up requests with subjects like "Mansfield Look-up" to specific mailboxes where it will be brought to their attention.

  2. Limit your lookup request to 1 specific person or a married couple at most. Do not ask for everybody with X surname or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed, please [be] advise that The USGenWeb Project volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests."

  3. CAPITALIZE all surnames in the message - John SMITH.

  4. Please, include dates (at least time frame), spouses, and issue if known. This data may save the volunteer valuable lookup time. Example: not having to spend time looking in 1600s sources for someone living in the early 1800s.

  5. State in your request the title of the source you want searched for many volunteers are doing several sources on several sites.

  6. Don't forget to the thank the volunteer.

      Thank you!
