General Research Request Form

Our staff strives to keep current with research inquiries and at the same time serve the patrons who visit the library. Our trained volunteers and staff at the Hamilton Library are available to answer specific historical questions. Upon receipt of minimum payment and completed form, we will begin your research. Depending on the amount of research CCHS conducts you will be billed up to a maximum of the hours you approve ($25.00 per hour with a minimum charge of $12.50) plus charges for copying ($.50 per page or $.75 per page for copies from microfilm).

These questions may relate to any of the following topics:
Deeds and property research
Tax records
Wills and estates
Records of births, deaths, marriages
Local history topics as reported in newspapers
Other sources regarding local history

Please note that due to limited staff and volunteer researchers, there may be a delay of several weeks before your inquiry is started.
