Pennington County Minnesota Genealogy

Pennington County Lookup Volunteers    

Pennington County needs volunteers to help look up genealogical information. If you have any reference material on Pennington County - public records, items from your own family files, or materials published before 1921 (copyrights expired) - and are willing to do limited lookups for others, please email me Lynn Brandvold so I can list your name and your reference material on this page.

When requesting a lookup of a Pennington County volunteer, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Put "Pennington Co. Lookup" in the subject line of your message.
  2. Put the name of the reference you are requesting in your message as the volunteer may have several references available.
  3. Limit your request to 1 or 2 specific names with approximate dates.
  4. If the information you are requesting involves photocopying and postage charges, offer to reimburse the volunteer and if considerable time and effort is involved, offer to pay for the volunteer's time.
  5. Don't forget to thank your volunteer for time and effort!
