Washington County, Colorado

Lookup Volunteers

This page lists those people who are willing to do lookups for you. Please don't innundate them with numerous lookups at one time. Also, be aware that asking for anything else other than a simple lookup with summary will entail expenses (copies, postage, travel mileage) that you should reimburse.

If you would like to volunteer please email Daniel B Cooley If you own a copy 100 Years of Washington County History by the Akron Museum Association you would be especially welcome.

I emailed two volunteers on 8/14/2013. Here's the results:
Keith Johnston kjay6@webtv.net "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)"
Marta Norton MNorton@Oneimage.com "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)"
I've removed their email links but I left in their resources for reference.

Well, now Arlene Glenn is the only volunteer left. She's still very active, I had her do some work for me a couple of months ago. She does excellent work, drop her a line.

Note: Arlene asks that you reimburse her for any copy or postage fees and mileage if she has to drive to Yuma or Akron or elsewhere.


Lookups: I will do lookups in the Yuma Museum collection, lookup articles published in the Akron                  News-Reporter and search the Washington County Court House records.

Headstone Photos: I will take digital photographs of headstones in the Burdett, Fairview-Hyde,                                  Otis, Akron, Hope and Curtis cemeteries.

Obit Summaries: I have several of Pat Oestman's books with transcribed obits from the Akron                              and Otis newspapers.
