Request Search Help

NOTE: Each Volunteer has individual limits as to what he/she may do. Some might be able to check library resources such as phone books and/or city directories; some may be able to go to courthouses or city halls or do other legwork; some are skilled in computer searches, etc.. We do not perform full searches from beginning to end, just specific tasks.

Locations covered:

Volunteers are available in most of the 50 United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Your request for help will be sent volunteers in one of the following 6 regions:

Volunteers may ask for reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses only. We do not charge for performing services. If you have any questions or concerns about being charged more than basic expenses, send copies of all relevant e-mail to vsn-request@listserv.icors.org so we may evaluate the situation and take appropriate action if necessary.
