Lookups

Lookup and local researcher assistance are available to help you in your Northwest Indiana genealogy and family history research.

LOOKUP RESEARCH REQUEST POLICY

NWIGS volunteers will perform a index look-up service from NWIGS publications. Negative findings will be indicated in our reply. A self address, stamped envelope is required for all requests. Two photocopies from the index are included in each request. Additional copies from the index or the row-by-row section require an additional payment $.20 per copy.

Notification of additional charges will be provided with the initial reply and must be paid prior to final completion of the request. Additional postage, if necessary, will also be billed when the request is answered. A list of area researchers will be provided upon request or when research request exceeds a NWIGS publication index search. Members are entitled to one free lookup per year (year begins July 1) from the below list.

DISCLAIMER: NWIGS can not guarantee the success of any search. If your research needs are beyond a search of our own publications, then you can contact one of our local researchers.
