Fayette County Lookups

 

 

USGenWeb Lookup Policy

The USGenWeb Project does not allow copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one or two names. Information given will be minimal. For example in a cemetery lookup, the information given will be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone. You may not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group or for hardcopies to be mailed. The USGenWeb Project volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests. Lookups can extend to searching the copyrighted material to determine if the material would be helpful to the requester in their research. Should the copyrighted material prove useful, the volunteer can provide the author's address and ordering information.

Please take time to thank those who help you!

If you can help others by providing lookups, please contact Rox Ann Johnson.
Most lookup volunteers find real enjoyment and satisfaction in helping others with their research.
