We encourage each researcher to come to our facility to personally conduct his or her search. Knowing that it may not be feasible, our volunteers will answer letters with research requests, but an email request to our society will generally be acknowledged within 48 hours. Please note that priority is given to our members. We ask that enough detail be provided to enable the research volunteer to conduct a thorough search of the materials here 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. It does not go to the volunteer who does 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.
