Research

Library Books on shelvesMembers of the Tuolumne County Genealogical Society will do research as requested. Following is a list of the items they will research and the cost per category. Additional research is available for $10.00 per hour, plus the cost of copies and shipping. We are blessed to have many seasoned genealogists in our society who are very generous with their time for doing lookups.

You have two choices in submitting your requests for lookups ~ either digitally using PayPal, or downloading and printing out a form. We request payment at the time you submit your request. If you prefer sending your request and check by U. S. Mail, you can download and print the form below.

If you choose PayPal, and their form does not provide enough space for the information you want to provide, please send a separate email to info@tcgen.org, with YOUR name in the subject line, to better define your search.

Resource LibraryWe will search for a maximum of two names for $5.00. If you wish more than that, please submit an additional request. If you want to receive a hardcopy of your research results, please understand there will be a modest fee charged to cover our copying and mailing costs. Findings will be sent digitally unless hardcopies are specifically requested. Please understand there may be a separate invoice for such mailings, which will be due before the research can be mailed. Thank you for understanding.
