How to Order Copies from the Surname Index                              Bookmark and Share

  • If you wish to order an item from the surname index, click on the Item Order Form.  Print out the form, fill it in, and mail it with payment (directions are on the form).
  • Each Item # may consist of 1 page or up to 10 pages.  The page numbers are listed in the Location or ID field of the index.
  • The cost for 1 item (regardless of the number of pages) is $1 for members and $2 for non-members. You may become a member on the order form and receive the member price.
  • Note that we copy the full page (not a snippet) which may contain valuable collateral information.  However, it is possible that the page contains NO useful information beyond what was included in the index.
  • Please do not order more than you need.  In the following example, if you want copies for Allie, Lillie, and Mrs. S. B. Douglass, ONLY ORDER Item # 71!  Item #71 includes ALL content on pages 10 and 11.
Item#  Surname First Middle Yr    Repos  Source                  Location or ID
        69  Douglass  Allie             1876  TGHS  Pub Bicentennial  Page 10
      70  Douglass  Lillie            1876  TGHS  Pub Bicentennial  Page 10
      71  Douglass  S. B. [Mrs.]  1876  TGHS  Pub Bicentennial  Page 10,11

  • When an individual has more than 1 item, the first item will have an asterisk in the Location field as shown in the example below.  The item with the asterisk consists of the "most useful" subset of pages.
