Researchers may visit our facility to personally conduct research in our materials.
Our volunteers will answer requests in letters or emails, but not by telephone.
An email request to our society will generally be acknowledged within 48 hours.
Priority is given to our members in the order we answer requests, if necessary.
We ask that specific details be provided to enable a thorough search at THE FORT.
We may sometimes recommend another place where you may find answers.
We do not travel to other facilities for research.
All research income is donated to the society, not to the volunteer doing the research.
A minimum research fee of $6.00 will be assessed for each inquiry.
There will be extra charges for photocopies, scanned sheets, or postage.
Copy fees per sheet are 15 cents for members and 20 cents for non-members.
Online items, such as articles from the Pantagraph Archive, can be sent electronically and will be prorated according to how many items are requested.
Please make all checks payable to: Lexington Genealogy & Historical Society or THE FORT and mail to 318 W. Main Lexington, IL 61753 or pay online from this site.
