Macon County Missouri Lookup Volunteers

Macon County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers

Below are listed some of the Macon County books that are available, although certainly not all. If you own any Macon County books, whether listed or not, and will do look-ups, please let me know. If you know of any other published Macon County resources, please let me know this also. As you can see, volunteers are needed.

Robert A. Penland has offered to lookup information you may need. Due to a busy work schedule, a response from Bob may take as long as 10 days. He has a heavy traveling schedule.

To use this tool, please click your mouse on the name of the "Volunteer" and this will allow you to send Bob an E-MAIL message regarding your information. Please be considerate of Bob and ask him a specific request about one individual using first and last names and include dates if they help.

Questions like:

"What can you tell me about the JONES FAMILY?"

will be promptly deleted.


1. Requesters first and last name.

2. Your mailing address, telephone number, email address.

3. The full name of the person you are researching; names of close family members.

4. When he or she lived, or approximate dates of important events.

5. Where he or she lived: state, county, township, town.

6. Exact information you are looking for: marriage, obituary, cemetery listing, etc.

7. Sources already consulted, with author (successfully?).

8. Be patient and understanding. As more people do internet research, the lookup person may be swamped with requests. Three weeks may seem like a lot of time to you, but the researcher with 25 requests may need that much time or more, to get to your request.

9. Inquire about the cost of copies and postage. Almost nothing is free these days.

10. A thank you is always welcome.

Please make the SUBJECT: MACON COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your request to ensure the message is not overlooked or accidentally deleted. In the first line of the message please put the name of the book in which you are requesting the lookup.

If you requested a lookup, don't forget to say, "I got it and thanks" because volunteers are hard to find. They work for your applause only.

If there is no answer, let me know as I am unaware of your direct communication with the volunteers.
