Submit a Research Request
When requesting genealogical information please be as specific as possible. Include names, dates and locations. Even an estimate is helpful if the exact date is unknown. Please indicate information you have already located so we can better direct our search. If for example you have already located the individual in specific census, indicate that in your request. Please do not send original documents or photos with your request.
