Image of brown hat and black sunglassesResearch services are limited due to a small staff; we can perform only a limited amount of research for you. Detailed research questions or a searching for a specific document is not possible given the circumstances. Generally, this means that staff will identify the record series most likely to contain the information requested.

Telephone, email, fax, and regular mail requests are worked on in the order in which they are received. We do not expedite requests or do "rush" orders. Generally, the research on these requests can be completed in 3-5 business days, but additional time may be required to photocopy and mail the records.  Photocopies must be paid for in advance by check or money order.  Thank you for your understanding.
