Apply as a Lookup Volunteer for Auckland

Lookup volunteers are the actual authors or copyright owners of a publication, or they are people who use primary source documentation, with written permission from the author or copyright holder.

Information given to the Lookup Volunteer must include the Name of the Book in the first line of your e-mail message, and be limited to one name, or two, if you are seeking a married couple. e.g.,

"Nga Moteatea", Takangaroa (f.a), and Te Hau (m) - Te Rarawa (tribe).

If you are requesting a lookup via post, please send an International Reply Coupon available from your nearest Post Office with return postage costs, and a Self-Addressed, A4 (8" x 11") envelope to the Lookup Volunteer.

The information received from the Lookup Volunteer is minimal. For example - confirmation that a name appears on a list, or in a publication, or that a name appears in a cemetery list with the headstone date. Should the book prove useful, the author's address and ordering information is given - if the book is not out of print. Lookups are subject to international Copyright Laws.
