Fillmore County Look Up Volunteers

Fillmore County needs volunteers to help look up genealogical information. If you have any reference material on Fillmore County - public records, items from your own family files, or materials published before 1921 (copyrights expired) - and are willing to do limited lookups for others, please email me the web master so your name and your reference material can be listed on this page. For materials published in 1921 or later (copyrights in effect), please refer to the USGenWeb Project's Official Copyright Policy.

When requesting a lookup of a Fillmore County volunteer, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Put Fillmore Co. in the subject line of your message.
  2. Put the name of the reference you are requesting in your message as the volunteer may have several references available.
  3. Limit your request to 1 or 2 specific names with approximate dates.
  4. Don't forget to thank your volunteer for time and effort!
