The Archives provides a variety of services for researchers. Whether you are researching your family genealogy, writing a thesis, or looking for material for a book or film, the Archives can assist you.

Research/Copy Services

If you don’t find what you want through our Online Record Search or you do not want to conduct your own research, the Archives can do the research for you. The Archives has a wealth of resources to assist in your research. If you want us to conduct research for you or provide a copy of a record that you find during a record search online, you can request assistance or a copy by submitting a Research/Copy Request.

Research services are $45 per inquiry, plus an additional amount for copies and scans. The average cost of an inquiry is $50.

Research at the Archives

You can also conduct your own research at our facility with help from the Archives staff. Your research and our assistance are free of charge, except for copy fees. The Archives makes history enjoyable and research even more so.

But if you can’t come to our facility, our staff can do the research for you. Research generally costs $45 per inquiry plus a minimal amount for copies.
