Research Requests

Those who need assistance prior to visiting or who cannot visit in person are welcome to contact us via phone, mail, or via our External Patron Reference and Research Request Form with questions or research requests. Long distance research requests are generally limited to information regarding the Center's holdings and advice as to how users may gain access to the information they need.

If you are looking for a specific piece of information (e.g. an obituary) for which a citation is readily available (e.g. bibliographic citation, or exact date and place of death in case of an obituary), staff can conduct a limited search for free. If you have a more extensive research need, a list of names and addresses of local people who can perform research for a fee is available upon request.

Due to staffing shortages, our current response time is up to 6 weeks.

Appointments to use our archival material must be booked through the Room Reservation System
