Research Assistance – We’re Here to Help!

If you are researching family from Shawnee County or northeast Kansas and not able to visit our area to do the research yourself, we would be happy to assist you. We’re familiar with the local resources and repositories, and our experienced volunteers would love to help you by retrieving records, doing lookups, or evaluating your research question and offering suggestions for resources that might be helpful in finding the answers.

To cover costs and help support our organization, we charge $25 per hour for our research services, with a 1-hour minimum advance payment. (Current members receive a discounted rate of $15/hour – you must log in to receive the discounted rate when paying online.) Most specific lookups and record retrieval requests can be completed within the 1 hour minimum. For more complex or in-depth assistance, please contact us and describe your question and we will provide an estimate of the amount of time that might be required.
