Research Fees

We encourage you to visit the Mercer County Historical Society and use the genealogy and local history collection to do your research.

The following fees are charged to help offset the cost of preserving our collections and for the time used by staff to complete requests.


You may conduct your own research on-site for free.

If you are unable to visit us in person we are available to conduct research for you.

MEMBERS: Free for the first hour - $20 per hour thereafter.

NON-MEMBERS: $20 per hour.

If you would like to become a member, please go to the Support page.
