The USGenWeb Project Official 
Lookup Policy

"The USGenWeb Project will not tolerate any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information given will be minimal; for example if it is a cemetery lookup, the information given will consist of the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone. Please do not ask for 'everybody with X surname' or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed; the volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests".

"Our lookups will extend to searching a book to see if it would be helpful to you in your research. Should the book prove useful, we can provide the author's address and ordering information".

When requesting a lookup, please follow these guidelines in your e-mail message to the volunteer:

  • Subject should read, "POWELL COUNTY LOOKUP".
  • In the first line of your message, please list the name of the reference you wish checked.
  • Limit your request to one or two specific names.
  • Be sure to say "thank you" to the volunteer who helps you.
