Looking for a RAOGK volunteer? Please read the FAQs in this section before you decide to make a Request from a RAOGK volunteer
Then go to the Volunteer Directory and locate someone in your area to do a lookup. Be sure to Rate your Volunteer to tell them and others how they did!
Please do not send your requests for lookups to the site coordinator, or the site’s hosting service. Requests sent to either one will not be answered.
The site is free to use. However, you WILL be expected to reimburse expenses incurred such as: film, video, postage, copies, and/or printing fees. In some areas you will also be expected to pick up parking fees. You are NOT to be charged time. If you feel you have been unfairly charged, please contact us and we will look into the situation.
Locate a volunteer in the area where information is needed. Read their Act of Kindness. Please only select a volunteer who has stated they will do the research you need in that area. Please do NOT request lookups/information if you live within travelling distance (up to 50 miles) from the city/area where you’ve made your request. In some instances and in some areas, the volunteer you’ve requested information from may even live further away than you do. When you have made your selection, click on the volunteer’s name. Fill in the form, making sure you have entered your e-mail address correctly. Click the submit button. If you have filled your e-mail address in correctly, you should receive a blind carbon copy of your request for your own records.
