Queries are an essential part of what we do. It is one of the ways we help the genealogical community and it is also one of the ways we raise money for the branch. Queries are therefore not free. By queries we mean bona fide research work done by one of our experienced researcher, checking for information in the books we have on the shelf for you.
Members get two free queries of up to one hour free per year of membership. Additional queries are charged at $10/hour.
Non-members pay $20 per query, for up to one hour of research and $10/hour if the research exceeds the first hour.
It is therefore to your advantage to become a branch member if you think you will want us to do research for you.
