Daviess County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers

Guidelines for Lookup Volunteers
Volunteers may do unlimited lookups if and only if:
1. The lookup volunteer is the actual author and copyright holder of the publication.
2. The lookup volunteer is using primary source documents, i.e. local courthouse resources or their own Xeroxed copies of PUBLIC domain documents.
3. The lookup volunteer has written permission from the author/copyright holder to use their publication for lookups.
Volunteers may be able to make certain limited scope lookups in copyrighted publications under the FAIR USE provisions of existing law.
Potential volunteers are strongly encouraged to review the explanations of copyright protection, especially the FAIR USE provisions, available elsewhere on the web.

Lookups at the Courthouse in Gallatin:

Lookups for non-members are $3 per query, 1 surname, plus cost of expenses [please be advised that they charge $1 per document copy at the courthouse].

Lookups for members are free, plus copying expenses.

We also charge 10 cents a mile if we need to drive a distance to get what you want.

Send queries first to:

Lanita Sconce Smith
DCGS President

[I may have resources in my home without a need to go to Gallatin.]

Otherwise, send query and payment to:

PO Box 245
Jamesport, MO 64648

Guidelines for Lookup Requests
1. Please put DAVIESS COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked or accidentally deleted. In the first line of the message please put the name of the book you are requesting the lookup in.
2. Please limit your request to one name per request. (Example: John Smith, not anything on any Smiths) Please be specific with your request!

Researchers should not ask, nor should lookup volunteers offer, to violate copyright laws in responding to requests for lookups in any copyrighted material.

If you own any Daviess County books, maps or other resources, whether listed or not, and will do look-ups, please email the webmaster at the address shown on the home page. As you can see, volunteers are needed. If you request a lookup, don't forget to thank your volunteer for their time.
