Genesee County Look-ups

Here are lookup guidelines :

Read This BEFORE Requesting a Lookup!!!!

Volunteers will do lookups for ONLY the source materials listed under their name.

Please do not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed.
Include the county name, SURNAME, relevant dates or places, and the tile of the source material you want the lookup in [ ie:name of book, cemetery, etc.] Many of our volunteers do lookups in more than one county and in more than one source. If the your request is vague, it may be overlooked or trashed!
PLEASE remember to THANK our volunteers and keep in mind they all have families and things to do too and will get to your request when they have the time.

If you would like to volunteer to do lookups or you have other Genesee County resources, please Contact Betty Thomas
