Lookup Volunteers

The USGenWeb's Official Copyright Policy:

The USGenWeb Project will not tolerate any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information given should be minimal, for example: If it is a cemetery lookup, the information should be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone.

Please do not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed; the volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests.

Lookups can extend to searching the Copyrighted Material to determine if the Material would be helpful to the requester in their research. Should the Copyrighted Material prove useful, the Volunteer can provide the authors address and ordering information.

The 4 Golden Rules of Copyright:
  1. Material older than 1921 are absolutely safe.
  2. Relaying FACTS is OK (This does not mean copying.)
  3. If the use of material created by someone else diminishes the market value of that person's work, then the copyright has been violated.
  4. Getting written (not email) permission from the publisher is the surest way to ensure that you are not violating copyright law.

Please note that these people are volunteering their time and effort. Make your requests as specific as possible, and give the volunteer enough information to aid in their search. If you have records pertaining to Mitchell County, or live in Mitchell County and can do some local research and are willing to volunteer your time, please let me know.

Volunteer Records
Rosa Seymour Mitchell County Federal Censuses
Nora Acton
CHARLES AND ELIZABETH LEE PALMER 1795-1975

Note: This particular Palmer family has a great many descendents living in Mitchell County. Look ups are possible but it will be a slow process because the book has no index. If they can give me some information on the person to look up, it would help.
