General GuidelinesEdit

When making requests of volunteers:

  • Make requests specific -- avoid being too general.
  • Make requests ONLY for the volunteer's specified research areas. (Do not ask for out-of-area requests.)
  • Never ask more than one volunteer for the same request.
  • Ask the volunteer what reimbursements they require: copies, gas, parking, etc.
  • Negotiate an estimated completion time ... Remember: volunteers are not "on the clock," may research for multiple people, and respond reasonably as their time permits.

Note: If no volunteer exists for an area, Follow the page for alerts of page changes. (Requires a wiki account.) Create a wiki account here.

  • check back again. (New volunteers sign up daily.)
  • join the FB RAOGK groups -- RAOGK USA and/or RAOGK International and post your research request. (One of the group members may live in that area and be willing to help.)

Sweden ALL HelenaH I would like to help out with Swedish records/researches – I have most accesses – just cannot go lookup further infos in the Real Archives in Sweden because I live in France – Swedish online archives has taken me back to early 16XX in my family though and is generally rather complete in my little country. I could also possibly read/transcribe/translate from French or Swedish to English or the other way around.</font>
Sweden ALL JerkerT I had some very interesting years with RAOGK helping Americans to find some of their roots in Sweden, and it was sad when it went out. It was nice to have the contacts and to receive post cards and letters in return. I have 26 Americans listed as being helped by me, and I would very much like to help more of you. It is also very interesting for me to look into parts of Sweden which I may not normally research. I also hope that some of my old contacts will get in touch with me again. AND IMPORTANT: I am not on Facebook or Twitter or any such network. Just not my thing. I prefer old fashioned email.
