Research may be conducted in person at our library (see our library hours) or you may send a written inquiry to be answered by our volunteer researchers.
Written inquiries may be submitted via traditional snail mail or e-mail. In your request, please tell us as specifically as possible what information you are seeking and what you already know. This will help us answer your request more easily and avoid duplicating research you have already done.
A flat fee of $25 is charged for all research inquiries. This includes up to 10 copies of research material and postage for response packages. Inquiries are answered in the order received. Please be patient with us, as there is often a three-month backlog.
