Local History staff entertains queries via telephone, mail or email regarding information contained within these collections. Due to staff limitations, however, in-depth research cannot be undertaken. If you wish to pose a question, please make it as specific as possible & include all pertinent background information. When requesting obituaries, please limit the number to three (3) per request. When requesting newspaper articles, please provide the exact date & page, when possible. If this is not known, staff will search a specified fourteen (14) day period.
