Requesting Research Services

For a $15 fee, a member of the History Center staff will spend up to one hour on your request and provide up to ten scans or photocopies of any relevant material.

Complete the Request for Research Services form online or print and mail the completed PDF form to us. Due to the volume of requests, please allow two to four weeks for a response.

Please be concise while providing as much information as possible to identify the individual in question; e.g., dates, places, relatives, etc. These details will help us connect any relevant material in our collections to your ancestor. Limit your query to one request about an individual or family. Because of finite staff resources, subsequent requests are considered on a case by case basis.

The outcome of any genealogical search cannot be guaranteed.

The online form will be automatically sent to us, if you prefer to use our PDF form please fill it out as completely as possible, and send the research application to or:
