Please remember, when posting a query or sending a written request that following guidelines can greatly assist you in receiving a response.
BASIC GUIDELINES FOR POSTING A QUERY ONLINE
- Always include a name, a locality, and a time period.
- Surname should be in CAPS (John FYFE) and in the body of the query, even if you placed it in the subject line. If other spellings have been found they should also be included (John FYFE/FIFE/PHYFE) .
- Clearly state the information you are seeking. For example: Need information on parents of John FYFE. Or, need information on wife of John FYFE. NOT "need all information on John FYFE". People do not usually respond to that kind of request.
- Include enough information to identify your ancestor but not so much it is confusing. For example: If you need a maiden name for the wife of your ancestor, your query could be; Seeking maiden name and parents for Janet, wife of John FYFE who lived in Gillespie, Macoupin Co. IL, 1900-1920. Children of Janet and John were; Janet, David, Arthur, Mary, and Michael.
- Limit your query to one problem and one family at a time.
- Always proofread BEFORE posting.

BASIC GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW WHEN WRITING FOR RECORDS

go to Dept. of Health and Rehabilitative Services
- Make your letters concise and to the point.
- Provide complete information on an individual and an event for which you need documents. Include all alternate spellings that may have been used.(John FYFE/FIFE/PHYFE)
- List dates and type of event as completely and accurately as possible. If you don't know the exact date, specify the span of years. A two (2) to five (5) year span is usually appropriate.
- Always provide an S.A.S.E., (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope).
- Remember that County offices have limited personnel and Genealogical queries are done as a service outside their realm of responsibility. Be patient and courteous in your transactions with government offices.
