General GuidelinesEdit

When making requests of volunteers:

  • Make requests specific -- avoid being too general.
  • Make requests ONLY for the volunteer's specified research areas. (Do not ask for out-of-area requests.)
  • Never ask more than one volunteer for the same request.
  • Ask the volunteer what reimbursements they require: copies, gas, parking, etc.
  • Negotiate an estimated completion time ... Remember: volunteers are not "on the clock," may research for multiple people, and respond reasonably as their time permits.

Note: If no volunteer exists for an area, Follow the page for alerts of page changes. (Requires a wiki account.) Create a wiki account here.

  • check back again. (New volunteers sign up daily.)
  • join the FB RAOGK groups -- RAOGK USA and/or RAOGK International and post your research request. (One of the group members may live in that area and be willing to help.)

Winnipeg Lianne Lavoie I can do a variety of lookups within Winnipeg. These include:


  • Photographing and transcribing tombstones
Note:Please provide as much information as possible! I cannot search for the tombstone of a person buried "somewhere in Winnipeg". I can search a whole cemetery, but it would be faster if you could narrow it down. :)
  • Lookups in the Winnipeg Free Press archive
  • Lookups in books that you know to be in the Local History Room at the Millenium Library
