1996 Newton County Lookups

Three Cheers for the Volunteers!!
If you are writing one of the lookup volunteers requesting information, please include "Newton County Look-up" as the subject line. Also, please be as specific as you can (names, dates, places) regarding your request and include THE NAME OF THE RESOURCE YOU WANT THE LOOK-UP FROM. Please, only ONE surname/resource per request. Be patient - some of them DO have lives outside of genealogy!! They will get back to you as soon as they can. Also, remember to thank them for their time - they are VOLUNTEERS.

If you would like to volunteer to do lookups please  Shirley Cullum
with your name, contact info and source info that you wish to do lookups in.

Rules for Lookup Volunteers

     Volunteers may do unlimited lookups if and only if:
        1.The lookup volunteer is the actual author and copyright holder of the publication.
        2.The lookup volunteer is using primary source documents ... whether they are treking to the courthouse or using
          their own xeroxed copies of public domain documents.
        3.The lookup volunteer has written permission from the author / copyright holder to use their publication for lookups
     Volunteers may be able to make certain limited scope lookups in copyrighted publications under the "fair use"
     provisions of existing law.
     Potential volunteers are encouraged to review the explanations of copyright protection, especially the "fair use"
     provisions, available elsewhere on the Web.
     One such is located at  http://www.usgenweb.org/volunteers/copyright.html

Rules for Lookup Requests

   To request a lookup from any of the references, click on the name of the owner and ask them politely. Remember,
          they are volunteers so they don't have to do this. Please remember to say thank you to the volunteer.

     Mention the name of the book in your message.
          Our volunteers aren't mind-readers &
          they may not remember which books they volunteered for.
     Make your requests for lookup limited in scope.
          "Tell me everything about the Smiths" is probably too broad.

  -- Researchers should not ask, nor may lookup volunteers offer, to violate copyright laws in responding to requests for  lookups in any copyrighted material. --

 If you haven't already read it, please go to the USGenWeb Copyrights FAQ Page and read it carefully before you  request a lookup or volunteer to do lookups. This page has important information about copyright laws as they  apply to the USGenWeb project.
