Image of brown hat and black sunglassesResearch services are limited due to a small staff, therefore, it is best for you to visit us to conduct your research. If, however, you are unable to visit, we will perform a limited amount of research for you. Detailed research questions or a searching for a specific document within a record series is not possible given the circumstances. Generally, this means that staff will identify the 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.
