Lookups and Queries
The County Coordinator and other lookup volunteers listed
on this page do not necessarily live in Wibaux County, and any who do will
respect the privacy of their neighbors, so please do not request visits to the
County Clerk's Office, cemetery visits and the like.
We will not honor any
requests for information about living persons, even phone book lookups. We are
adamant about genealogy resources not being used for possible identity theft.
(In addition to local lookups, you may post queries to
the Wibaux County bulletin board at Rootsweb)

The USGenWeb Project Official Lookup Policy
USGenWeb will not tolerate any copyright violations. 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 book
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 the author's address and ordering
information. The USGenWeb Project will endeavor to get a written statement
from each copyright holder which stipulates which books may be used for
When requesting a lookup, please follow these guidelines in your
e-mail message to the volunteer:
- Subject should read, "WIBAUX COUNTY LOOKUP".
- In the first line of your message, please list the name of the
reference you wish checked.
- Limit your request to
one or two specific names.
- Be sure to say "thank you" to the volunteer who helps
