Research Requests


In order to assist those who are unable to visit, a member of our volunteer staff will conduct research for a per-hour fee of $15. E-mail or call us with a request about a person, family, place, or event, and we will let you know if we have the resources to satisfy your inquiry and what the charge will be. Then, upon receipt of payment (check, Visa, or MasterCard), we will send you the results.
