Vanderburgh County Message/Query Board

How to write an effective query...
List important information in your title: 

"Looking for family" is NOT a good title, everyone is looking for family/ancestors, etc.; nor is "Help!!" People that look through queries don't usually have the time (or inclination) to look at "Help" queries. Personally, I never look at either of the types of queries above.
"James Holley 1877 IN" or "Holley 1850 NY>OH>IN"   --- are a good titles: it gives name, time frame and location.
"Death Records - 1820" Is another example of a good title. It gives what you are looking for and the time frame.

If you have any suggestions... please let me know, I'll add them here!
