Mail requests for research will be forwarded to appointed members of the Society. The fee for an initial request will be $10.00, from which $2.00 will go to the Society and $8.00 to the researcher. Fees for further research resulting from the initial requests will be negotiated between the client and the researcher, and will go entirely to the researcher.  Write to W&BCGS, P.O. Box 10166, Loves Park, IL 61131-0166; A return self-addressed stamped envelope should be included with each request, as well as an e-mail address if available. Checks should be payable to the Winnebago & Boone Counties Genealogical Society (or W&BCGS).

The initial fee covers about one hour of research, which may be adequate for simple requests or to make a judgment on the scope of material potentially available.
