USGenWeb Official LOOKUP Policy

USGenWeb will not tolerate any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to 1 name or two names, if it is a married couple. Please be advised that the information given will be minimal. For example, if it is a cemetery lookup, the information will consist of the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone. Kindly do not ask for everybody with "X" surname or an entire family group --or for copies to be mailed to you. Volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests.

As a general guideline for lookups in books and manuscripts, be advised that lookups will extend to searching the book to determine if the book would be helpful in your research. Should the book prove useful, we will try to provide the author's address and ordering information.

Please summarize your requests as clearly as possible. Allow 1 week to receive a response before resubmitting. If you have Cortland County information available and can volunteer your time to do lookups, please contact Tim. We are actively seeking volunteers to staff the Lookup Page.
