Research Request


If you are interested in receiving the complete record to an item you found on one of the online indexes, we can send you the appropriate document for a fee per item (see below). Our volunteers can also do research on your Jefferson County surname for an hourly fee (see below).

Complete the Research Request Form and send it with the applicable fee to the mailing address on the form. There is a lot of information available at the Research Center that is not on the website. On the  Research Request Form give us as much information as possible on your Jefferson County family, noting what records you have already searched.

Research Fees

$5.00 for any record indexed on the website. If you are interested in receiving copies of several records, the “hourly rate” might be a better deal for you.

$20.00 per hour of research through our collection including **up to 10 copies**. Additional copies are 20¢ each. The rates for JCGS members are $10.00/hr and 10¢ each for additional copies. Records indexed on the website are usually one page each.

NOTE: If funds are drawn on a foreign bank, please add $5 for the additional processing fee.
