This RCGS web page provides a list of Rock County, Wisconsin reference books with email links to the books' owners who have volunteered to provide short look-ups and either transcriptions of text or scanned images from the reference texts.

Please Remember - This Service is Limited:

  • Only current Society members may request Look-Ups (Join RCGS for $10 and enjoy many Benefits),
  • Only one request per person (Okay, maybe two). For bigger requests, please Email the RCGS Library for inexpensive research,
  • Book look-ups only - not Look-Ups from RCGS Indexes whose sales are one of the Society's only sources of revenue,
  • Please be patient. Our overworked volunteers often wait and batch several requests for their own convenience.
