Research Services

Provided by GSOR member volunteers

All newspaper research requests are $15 / 30 minutes of research, 30 minute minimum. This includes obituaries lookups.
All fees include copy costs and postage to return your records, up to 10 pages.
At the present time, the Library Microfilm readers will only print from the record, digital scanning is not available.
We cannot guarantee that the record you are hoping to find will be available. Our volunteers will be diligent in their search for your information, however if the record you ask for is not found/available you will not receive a refund.
You will receive a response stating what records/ timeframes were searched.
Please complete the Research Request Form and mail with payment to

We accept money orders or checks made out to GSOR. Unfortunately, we do not accept credit cards.
It is strongly encouraged that you provide identifying data such as names of parents, children and other family members, occupations, etc., with your request to ensure accuracy in the information returned to you. This is especially valuable if your ancestors had common names.
