The fee for each search will include the following: (1) up to 12 photocopies for most orders with a citation of the source, or (2) a Report of Search, indicating all sources searched if no information is found.

The staff of the Heritage Room are not authorized to engage in comprehensive genealogical research or to verify family relationships.
