  • 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.

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 York ... I live in Allen Co., IN.

ALL Petriska I can do Birth,Marriage,Death vital record look-ups in the NYS Archives for upstate NY (NYC keeps their own records that are not included in the state archives). The information I can see includes name, place, date of event, NYS VR registration number. With that information you can request copies of the original document from NYS. NYS charges $22 per copy. Without this information NYS will do a search for you but it will cost more and it will take much longer to get your documents.

NY State mandated localities send this information to the state health department starting in the early 1880's, but compliance was irregular until the mid 1890's. The cities of Albany, Buffalo, and Yonkers did not send information to NYS until 1914!
