Lookup Volunteers
for Decatur County, Iowa

The following people are willing to lookup information in the records which they have access to. To check the availability of records see the County Records page.

If you have any records that you could look up information and wish to volunteer, please contact Decatur County's site coordinator (link at left). Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.

When asking for someone to look up something for you, please observe these guidelines:

  • Be specific and provide as much information as you can. This will guide the researcher to the information without spending a lot of time trying to guess and/or second guess.

  • Limit your request to one item or one lookup at a time.

  • Be considerate. These people are volunteers and shouldn't be expected to spend more than a few minutes accessing the material you are requesting.

  • Do NOT request someone to research an entire family line for you unless you are willing to reimburse them for their time and effort.

  • If sending a request via snail mail, include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your request.
