Requesting a Look-up

Referred to for "lookups" --Lookup Informants provide a labor of love when helping you find missing pieces of your family puzzle that eludes you. "But what is a lookup and what can I expect in the results?"  Listed in the right-hand column are the various and diverse Danube Swabian reference materials available to the DS researcher.

IMPORTANT: Many people today have some sort of spam blocking capabilities set up for their email. This could either be through a stand-alone application on the computer or the ISP may have one set up for their customers (sometimes unknown to their customers). Upon receipt of an e-mail from someone not already in an "address book" some of these applications will send out an e-mail for the correspondent to click on a link in the e-mail in order to get the message through. Please be advised that many of our volunteers will not do this. The volunteer may have tried to contact you but could not. If you have such a filter on your incoming e-mail you may have to lower your threshold of blockage and try again.

Lookup Request Manners

Please be specific with your request.

The books are written in German and sometimes difficult to read, therefore realize the informants are not professional genealogist and are still prone to making mistakes.

While your information is provided to you freely, some Lookup Informants are offered payment for time consumed in extensive searches, which is in the way of a genealogy service.

The Informants are here to help you, so please don't take advantage of their time and generosity.

If you request photo copies of the pages, volunteer the cost of copying and postage.
