Keep in mind, volunteers on this page are mainly doing this because of their love of genealogy and the willingness to help others. Please try to keep your requests to one name per email and give as much identifying information as possible. If you ask "could you send me everything you can find on the Johnson family of Lake County?" you might not even get a reply because it's just too broad. Narrow it down so that they are sure to find YOUR ancestor instead of sending you info on people you have no interest in. And, be sure to thank the volunteer, afterall they're giving you a part of your family heritage that you might not otherwise find.

I recently purchased a republished "Encyclopedia of Genealogy and
Biography of Lake County, Indiana, with a Compendium of History"
from 1834-1904 by Rev. T.H. Ball. It is a wealth of information
about your area. I would be happy to put it to use for "look ups",
if you would like. Bear in mind, that like most people I'm a
working fool and can't spend more than a few hours a week on
genealogy. BUT IT SURE IS INTERESTING AND FUN! I HAVE THE
