Vicki’s note: An organization that you may be interested in using for free. Or you may want to be a genealogy volunteer.  RAOGK volunteers charge for their costs, but not their time:

 Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness
RAOGK is a global volunteer organization.  Our volunteers take time to do everything from looking up courthouse records to taking pictures of tombstones. All they ask in return is reimbursement for their expenses (never their time) and a thank you.

Our volunteers have agreed to do a free genealogy research task at least once per month in their local area as an act of kindness. While the volunteers of Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) have agreed to donate their time for free, you MUST PAY the volunteer for his/her expenses in fulfilling your request (copies, printing fees, postage, film or video tape, parking fees, etc.) if they ask for it.

At one time there were thousands of volunteers in every U.S. state and many international locations, and helped thousands of researchers. Be sure to read our RAOGK Guidelines and FAQ’s for before making a request and or becoming a Volunteer

It’s all about Volunteering

Want to Volunteer?

Ideally, you should reside in the area for which you volunteer. The purpose of this site is to help others obtain copies of documents, pictures of tombstones, etc., that can not be obtained easily by those who do not live in the area of their ancestors.
