There is a shortage of volunteers to do look-ups right now. If you own (or have access to) any Hansford County references  (such as census, cemetery, marriage, newspaper abstracts, etc.) and would be willing to do lookups for other Hansford County researchers, then please contact me.

When asking a volunteer to look up someone for you, please remember that they are volunteers and let them know how much you appreciate their work for you.
