Genealogy Requests


The Southwest Oklahoma Genealogical Society will do “lookups” in most indexed material in the Family History Room of the Lawton Public Library and offer suggestions for further research when appropriate.  Census lookups are not done.  Neither the Lawton Public Library nor SWOGS does actual research.

When requesting a lookup please provide names, dates, and places as much as possible and be specific in what you are looking for.

The lookup fee is $5.00 per lookup payable in advance.   Please include an SASE.


Mail request, with fee to:   SWOGS / P.O. Box 148 / Lawton, OK 73507


For newspaper lookups including obituaries: please supply the date the article ran or the date of the event (i.e., death date for an obituary).  A search will then be conducted up to seven days after the provided date.
