Unable to Visit AHSGR’s Library? use our Research Request Form!

Patrons who are not able to visit AHSGR’s Research Library in Lincoln, Nebraska to use the library, archives, and genealogy collections may use AHSGR’s reference services to access these resources. To request research services, click on the Research Request Form below, fill it out, and return to AHSGR. For other questions, please contact us online.

Please limit your research request to ONE SURNAME at a time. It is helpful if you send on all information you have available on all the ancestors’ families for which you request information (you may send them with your research request). You may purchase genealogy forms from headquarters for $0.25 each plus postage or print these forms. Allow 12 to 14 weeks for a response to your request.

Research Services Pricing

Reference service fees are charged to cover the expenses incurred by AHSGR in performing research for members and non-members. All requests for reference services incur a base or hourly fee except for Russian Archives Records research. See Russian Archives Records for details of this service and how its fees are established.

Base Fee

Members $10
Non-members $30

Research Time

Members $30 per hour
Non-members $90 per hour

Photocopies in-house

Members $0.25 for each copy

Photocopies sent out are the same price as in-house, but postage charges will be added.

Copies from Microfilm are the same as photocopies.

Surname Charts

Single charts

Members $50 each
Non-members $100 each

Two-piece charts

Members $70 for both parts
Non-members $120 for both parts

The base fee is applicable to requests not incurring other charges for research time. The base fee is applicable even if the research staff is unable to find information pertinent to the request, as considerable staff time and effort is still required.

Please bear in mind that the staff may be able to check a number of records in one hour. If you think your request may be time consuming and you wish to limit the research to a specific dollar figure, please indicate the amount you are willing to spend for the research. Number in order of preference the records you want checked in the limited amount of time. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY IN ADVANCE! You will be billed for the charges. Any charges of $25 or more will require advance payment before materials will be sent to the requestor.

Please email or mail your requests to the attention of Reference Librarian:
