research services

Research is defined as the collection, assembly or extraction of data or information from records, or the analysis of information to provide a report. Due to the variety of resource material in our collection as well as limited staff resources, a personal visit is strongly encouraged. You can schedule an appoinment to visit our collections in person by contacting us at 757-787-8012.

Research performed by the Historical Society staff will generate a pre-paid non-refundable fee of $35.00. Our research service cannot, in general, exceed 1 hour of investigation and successful results cannot be guaranteed. Inquiries are answered in the order they are received. Please allow 3-4 weeks from receipt of payment for results. For best results please provide as much information as possible including: names of people or locations and dates of occurrence.
