Genealogy Search Request Form

Request obituary searches within catalogued items

All of our genealogy holding are listed in the online card catalog except the newspapers which are listed adjacently. Please browse the catalog and search by subject using specific categories, ie. Cemetery Records, Obituaries, etc.

Genealogy requests may or may not be fulfilled depending upon available staff at the time of the request.

We charge $25 for the first hour or any part thereof and an additional $15 per hour for any part or whole hour thereafter. Payment must be received by the library prior to the search.


The library director will respond to your request within a few days, acknowledging receipt of your query. Searches do not begin until staff is available and funds have been received. If you do not hear from the director within 5 days, please call 660-663-3222 and request to speak with her.

Thank you!
