Research Rates for Members. If you are a member of the Society you will get a discount for Research done by our Volunteers. See the form for the Fee Schedule.
A volunteer genealogy researcher is available to do basic Santa Clara County research. Fees vary according to the extent of the research. You may either submit your research request through our online order form, or print and mail a Research Request Form along with your payment. This form is in PDF format and requires Adobe Reader which is available free from Adobe. If you do not have the ability to read the PDF file or you are having problems reading the form, it is also available in a text format.
Please keep in mind that this research is done by volunteers, and our expected response time is 60-90 days, depending on demand and on the availability of volunteers. If you need more research than what can be provided by our volunteers you may want to hire a professional researcher. The Board of Certified Genealogist and The Association of Professional Genealogist has a list of current researchers that specialize in California research.
SCCHGS volunteers staff the Genealogy Room at the Santa Clara City Library daily, usually from 1-3 pm; also 7-9 pm as volunteers are available. Consultants introduce patrons to the collection and assist them with their research problems.
