Our staff can answer general research questions for a small fee. In your request, please clearly define the information you would like us to look for (i.e., a name, event, date, or document) and any sources you want us to search. Vague or poorly defined requests cannot be researched and will be returned.
When will I get the results? Research requests are handled in the order they are received. Turnaround time is 15‑20 business days from receipt of payment.
Can I publish the results of the research? If you would like to publish a reproduction of an item in our collections, please see Copies and Reproductions.
