Requesting Research

If you'd like to request research from ACHS, the standard fee is $30 per hour with a two-hour minimum of $60 per request. This fee must be paid in advance of research being done. In making an inquiry, one should ask specific questions for which an answer is sought. We cannot promise answers to the questions asked but we can guarantee a thorough examination of our holdings and a report of our findings. If you wish to have copies (either paper or digital) of pertinent primary sources, such as land records or estate papers, there will be an additional charge of $0.50 per copy. If you would like copies of specific documents and our volunteers determine that it will not require a full research inquiry, copies can be made for a $10 fee and $0.50 per copy. Materials can be delivered digitally or by mail at the expense of the patron.  Please click the link below to download our research request form. Completed forms should be sent by email to info@achs-pa.org, or by mail to P.O. Box 4325, Gettysburg PA 17325.
