Sherburne County MNGenWeb

Lookups and Volunteers

As you can see, this list is under development and needs volunteers to help look up genealogical information. If you have any reference material on Sherburne County - public records, church histories, items from your own family files, and are willing to do limited lookups for others, please (e-mail) me with the resource title, author, publication date, your name and e-mail address, and I will add them to this page. For materials published in 1921 or later (copyrights in effect), please refer to the USGenWeb Archives policy.

When requesting a lookup by a Sherburne County volunteer, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Put "Lookup, Name of Person, Sherburne Co." in the subject line of your message.
  2. Put the name of the reference you are requesting in your message as the volunteer may have several references available.
  3. Limit your request to 1 or 2 specific names with approximate dates.
  4. Please do not ask for photocopies.
  5. Don't forget to thank your volunteer for time and effort!
  6. Follow other instructions that the volunteer describes below
