SJCPL Local & Family History Information Request Form
Thank you for your interest in St. Joseph County, Indiana history or genealogy.

We are happy to help long-distance patrons or homebound patrons by looking up specific items such as obituaries, marriage licenses, and newspaper articles.

For patrons outside our service area, this service is offered for a fee of $10.00 per query paid in advance. Fees may be paid by credit card or by mailed check after staff have reviewed the request and confirmed the fees with the patron.

Please note that it may take several weeks to fulfill your request. We are very limited in the amount of research that can be completed on behalf of a patron, so please be specific and provide as much information as possible in your request. Requests beyond the scope of the assistance our staff are able to provide may be rejected or asked to narrow their focus.

For more information, contact us at 574-282-4621 or local.history@sjcpl.org.

Please complete the form below to submit your request to SJCPL's Local & Family History Services Department.
