Lawrence Co., TN
Look-up Volunteers
 

We are starting all over with the list of volunteers for Lawrence County. Many of the email addresses to individuals who previously did lookups were no longer working, or they no longer wished do lookups. The whole list has been wiped clean, so we can start over. If you are willing to do lookups free for researchers, please let me know by sending an email to the Lawrence County Archives. If you own Lawrence County books, will go to an archives or courthouse, take a picture of a cemetery, lookup census through ancestry.com, etc., we would love to add your name to the list.

FIVE GOLDEN RULES   

1. Ask for only one look-up for one surname at a time, unless the person you contact tells you they will do multiple look-ups.

2. If you want copies of information found, the person doing the look-up may charge you for the cost of copies and postage. You should send the money before receiving the copies.

3. If a volunteer is listed in a category as volunteering to go to a courthouse, cemetery, archives or library for you, you can be charged for copies, postage and for gas to travel to and from the destination.

4. Remember these are volunteers and do not abuse their services.  

5. Always thank a volunteer.

Another good source for free lookups is the RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) web page. Individuals from many counties in many states have volunteered to look up information for free in courthouses, books, take pictures of tombstone, etc.  Depending on what you request of the volunteer, you may be charged for mileage, parking fees, copies, postage, film, video. All of these can be found under one web site for convenience. Just remember, there are rules to follow when requesting lookups and some counties do not have any volunteers. Also, if someone does a lookup for you, RAOGK requests that you return the favor by doing at least one lookup from your county for someone.

On most of the usgenweb pages for each county, there are usually volunteers listed to do limited lookups.
