This section is for members of the forum to offer lookups on a particular book or resource that they own.

It will hopefully enable others to gain access to information they might not have had previously.

How this section works:

If you have a book, or other resource (say a CD or perhaps access to a subscription-based website) then post a new topic in this section. The subject of your topic should be the name of the resource you are offering lookups on.

The thread can then be replied to by any interested party.

Please remember that the original poster may have a life outside this forum - once you have posted your request please be patient while awaiting your reply.

It is the responsibility of the original poster to check for replies. It will not be the responsibility of the admin to check, unless they themselves are the original poster.

Please also remember to be reasonable with your requests. If someone offers lookups from a City Roll of Honour, don't ask someone for every single entry from the book.

Thanks,

David

Some new additions to the guidelines for this section.

All new threads posted here must have their subject line start with one of the following:

LOOKUPS - if you have a resource and are offering lookups, then you must mark it as a LOOKUP thread

LIST - if you are posting a list of data then you must mark it as a LIST

LINK
- any links to external sources or lists of information must be marked as a LINK

For any LIST posts, please keep your list to one thread - please do not split it into separate threads. If your data is a long list, please use the reply feature in a thread to input the data across several replies if required.

Any user posting threads which do not follow these guidelines will receive a Private Message from a Moderator or Adminstrator requesting they made the required amendments. If they do not do so in a reasonable space of time then their thread may be edited or removed by the Moderators.

New threads can also be moved to another section or removed completely if they are deemed to be outwith the remit of this section. Please note any threads which contain a single request for information should be posted int the Queries and Requests section.
