DGS is a volunteer organization without the people resources to do lookups or research as a service. So we must decline all requests for research and lookups. Neither can we recommend individual professional researchers. However, there are two organizations who can help you locate a record or a professional suitable for your needs.
- Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness has volunteers around the country who will do simple lookups or photograph cemetery stones, for free or the reimbursement of copy costs.
- Association of Professional Genealogists membership is based on genealogists who do research for others for a negotiated fee. This fee is negotiated between the client and the professional researcher. Many APG members are certified genealogists. All APG members are bound to a code of ethics.
