Sanilac County

Look Ups

Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information given will be minimal, for example if it is a cemetery lookup, the information will be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone. Please do not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed; the volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests.

Our lookups will extend to searching the book to determine if the book would be helpful to you in your research. Should the book prove useful, we can provide you with the authors address and ordering information.

Sanilac County Look Up Volunteers

The people listed below have been gracious enough to volunteer to do SIMPLE lookups for you. Please do not overwhelm them with your requests and be sure to send them a THANK YOU, even if they were unable to locate any information for you.
Remember, these people have volunteered their TIME for you. As repayment for their help, we only ask that you pass on the favor by helping someone else with their research along the way.

Please contact the volunteer listed next to the source you would like checked. Be as specific in your e-mail as to what information you are needing from what source. Response time should be 3 to 7 days. Please be patient they're volunteers.

If you can volunteer to help with lookups please contact me.
