* Additional fees may apply if we need to go to outside sources. I.E., probate records, wills, ect.

HOW TO ORDER RESEARCH

A Research Request Form must accompany each request.

Unless you have one specific request, we must have a Family Group Sheet on one family enclosed. We will not accept multiple pages of computer printouts.

It is also helpful for our Volunteers if you fill out a simple Four-Generation Chart.

We ask that you fill out these forms so that we do not duplicate the information that you have already collected. Not complying could cause a delay in fulfilling your request.
