Look-up requests Instructions
IMPORTANT: Only "New London
Look-up" without the quotes must be the
subject. Many volunteers receive 100s of E-mail messages daily from genealogy mail
lists, online services, etc. Most of the time only subject lines are scanned. If it
contains nothing of interest for the volunteer, the E-mail may be trashed without being
read. Some volunteers have setup E-mail filters that will automatically place E-mail with
certain subjects into specific mailboxes - "Norwich Look-up" being one. A
message with "Norwich Look-up" as subject, will keep it from getting lost in the
shuffle. Thank you!
Limit your lookup request to 1 specific person or a married couple at most. Do not ask for
"everybody with X surname or an entire family group, or for hard copies to be mailed,
please [be] advise that The USGenWeb Project volunteers have been asked not to comply with
CAPITALIZE all surnames in the message - John SMITH.
Include dates (at least time frame), spouses, and issue if
known. This info may save the volunteer valuable lookup time. Example: not having to spend
time looking in 1600s sources for someone living in the early 1800s.
State in your request the title of
the source you want searched for many volunteers are doing several sources on several
Remember to thank the volunteer!
