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
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.
"What can you tell me about the JONES FAMILY?"
will be promptly deleted.

8. Be patient and understanding. As more people do internet research,

time or more, to get to your request.
9. Inquire about the cost of copies and postage. Almost nothing is free
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
