REQUESTING LOOKUPS:
If you request a lookup from one of the above volunteers:
Unless otherwise indicated, the volunteers are providing information from published resources and they do NOT live in Traill County or have the opportunity to do on-site research at Traill County locations.
Searching in source material doesn't guarantee results will be as we would like; however, the volunteer still puts forth the same (if not more) effort in the search.
The courtesies of "please and thank-you" are especially appropriate when someone is kindly volunteering to help you.

VOLUNTEERS:
If you own or have access to any Traill County resources, (such as census, cemetery, marriage, newspaper abstracts), and are willing to do lookups for other Traill County researchers, please contact the County Coordinator.
