Ask a Question
Unable to visit the library in person?
We are happy to help identify materials which may be relevant to your research. However, due to limited staffing we are not able to conduct research for off-site patrons. If you need research done in our collections, but are unable to visit the library, you may wish to hire a local researcher. The Association of Professional Genealogists has a listing of professional researchers on their website. Library staff is also happy to recommend a local freelance researcher.
Need an appointment?
Requests for appointments should be submitted at least a week prior to the date you would like to come in. Please keep in mind that no appointment is necessary to use our image database, oral history database, or any of the books described in our online library catalog: appointments are only required for use of the archives and manuscript collections. Requests for appointments will be answered within one week.
Have a question?
We are happy to answer questions about what we have in our collection that will further your research. Please fill out the form below and your question will be answered in the order in which it was received. We have a small staff and receive a large number of questions every day, so it may be several weeks before you receive a reply. We thank you in advance for your patience and will work to answer you in a timely manner.
