Researchers -- General Guidelines

  • 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.

NEW JERESEY Volunteers

The Volunteer table below provides a list of New Jersey volunteers who will provide research assistance in the specified counties.

County Volunteer's Name Volunteer Services
ALL Art Suever CITY DIRECTORIES & FAMILY HISTORIES
  • Can help with family histories listed in the Allen Co. Public Library Genealogy Catalog (ACPL). If there is a listing for a book, provide me with a list of titles/call numbers, family surname(s), and what family information you're looking for. (Also check the availability of ACPL microtext records (microfilm and microfiche).)
  • The ACPL is the foremost repository for city directories. I can research hard cover city directories found in the ACPL Genealogy Catalog or microfiche and microfilm city directories found in the ACPL microtext catalog. (Please specify city, date range needed, and person(s) of interest.)

Note: I do not live in New Jersey ... I live in Allen Co., IN.

ALL Shelli Steedman I will check my marriage index 1892-1996 and death index 1960-1997. Not all counties are listed. I can also check censuses for any state.
ALL Jill Novak Will do lookups in US Federal Census Collection for all New Jersey towns 1850 to 1930, lookups for WW1 and WW2 draft registrations, passenger records and indexes for naturalization.
ALL M Lake I am willing to do look-ups in the genealogy-related volumes and genealogy-related publications I have on hand. Please follow the guidelines (as follows). If the guidelines are not followed correctly I may or may not respond.

• 1. Most of the publications I have are indexed (or searchable in the case of digital media), but some are not. I will do look-ups only in those publications which are indexed (or searchable ... with one exception as noted below). The list of publications I have on hand is referenced below. Whether or not a publication is indexed (or searchable) is noted in the list. • 2. A look-up request consists of one name (either a full name or only a surname) and the title/author of one publication. If a surname is requested I will return all the first names for that surname appearing in the index. (NOTE - I will NOT do this for digital media which is only searchable.) If a full name is requested I will return the entire citation(s) appearing in the requested publication either in typed form or in digital form (usually depending upon the length of the material to be returned). • 3. One look-up request should be enclosed entirely within one email. • 4. Please send only one look-up request at a time. After you receive my response to one look-up request then another look-up request may be submitted. • 5. See a list of publications I have on hand http://68.109.158.95:8080/BooksIOwn.html Please know that it may take some time to get back to you. It depends upon how many requests I currently have, what else is going on in my life at the time, and how energetic I feel.
