Lookup Service

A group of lookup volunteers are listed on this page to help provide you with basic information about one of your ancestors. Help them by being very SPECIFIC in your request, and by limiting the request to one or two ancestors. Since they do lookups for many different books please be sure to GIVE THEM THE TITLE OF THE BOOK OR INDEX you would like searched.

Attention: Hamilton County Lookup Volunteers are Needed!
If you own or have access to genealogical material, please consider joining in our volunteer-driven project. Volunteers are not asked to do extensive research, but simply to provide basic information via e-mail about an individual ancestor query. If you are willing to do Reference Lookups, please Volunteer by sending a message to the County Coordinator listed on the HOME page.

    • Please limit your request to ONE NAME (or couple), and allow some time for a response.
    • Click on the Lookup Contact and e-mail your request. Type HAMILTON COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your request.
    • In your request include the full name of the person (or couple), the SPECIFIC information you are looking for and the book or index you would like them to consult.
    • Please THANK your volunteer for their efforts.
