For those unable to visit the library, an index check for a SINGLE FAMILY (standard references in the RCGS library only).  We require an advance donation of $15.00 per family, limited to 2 hours.  If a third hour or more is required to complete the search, an additional $5.00 per hour will be requested. If many entries are found, we will advise you of the additional amount necessary to cover excessive copies.  A family group sheet for the one family (listing father, mother, and children's names with birth/death/marriage dates and locations where known) MUST accompany the request.  Mail your request and payment to the Society at:
