A NOTE ABOUT OUR RESEARCHERS
While our researchers charge $30.00 per hour for research (with a 1/2 hour minimum), you will pay for any additional copies, photographs, microfilm prints, etc. prepared in conjunction with your request.
For example, if you have one hour of research, with 10 xerox copies and 3 reprints of original photographs, the entire fee for services will be $56.50 plus $5.99 postage. You will be expected to pay these fees, plus postage, in advance of receiving the research. All research must be paid in advance.
