Research Appointments

You MUST select an appointment date at least 3 business days after you submit this form. Depending on your topic of interest, the records you wish to view, and the staff available on the appointment date you select, we may request via e-mail that you change your research appointment date so that we can better accommodate your research needs.   Exceptions to this may be granted on an extremely limited basis upon request for repeat researchers.

You WILL receive a confirmation e-mail with your appointment date and time.  If you do not receive this e-mail, your appointment is NOT confirmed.   If you have not received any sort of response within a (business) day or two, please e-mail
