Our genealogy policy

Fees for Research:

Copies of obituaries are $2.00 each.

A $5.00 minimum fee is charged for all other historical or genealogical look-ups. We also charge ten cents per copied page and ask that you reimburse postage.

The library provides only basic look-ups such as checking marriages records, will records, census records, checking family files, etc. In depth research should be done by the individual or by obtaining the services of a professional researcher.
