Kern County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers

I have listed many of the Kern County books that are available, although certainly not all. If you own any Kern County books, whether listed or not, and will do lookups, please let me know. As you can see, volunteers are needed.

The USGenWeb's Official Copyright Policy

The USGenWeb Project 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 should be minimal, for example:

If it is a cemetery lookup, the information should 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.

Lookups can extend to searching the Copyrighted Material to determine if the Material would be helpful to the requester in their research. Should the Copyrighted Material prove useful, the Volunteer can provide the authors 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 lookups.

When requesting a lookup please put KERN COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked or accidently deleted. In the first line of the message please put the name of the book you are requesting the lookup in.

If you request a lookup, don't forget to thank your volunteer for their time.
