Research Services, Requests & Lookups

Researching “from away” can be difficult, time-consuming AND frustrating. The Sno-Isle Genealogical Society receives many requests for look-ups and records searches; we would like to help you as much as we can. Be sure to check the Fee Schedule below for the costs of general photocopies, computer print copies, obituaries and published marriages from the library’s special collections, etc., and In-House research fees.

We are very proud of our Snohomish County collections, which include South Snohomish County Marriages (Edmonds area-1905-1930), South Snohomish County Marriages (Edmonds area – 1905-1923) and the Snohomish County Obituaries Collection (1986 through 2012).

SIGS is happy to do “In-House” look-ups from the Society’s library holdings. Check both our website and our Digital Library Catalog to see if we hold the resource you want us to search. When making your request be sure to include the following:

  • The name of the book or publication
  • The Author
  • The Call Number (if available)
  • Surname of the individual you are researching

If you’re using surface mail, PLEASE enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.

Once your look-up request has been received the SIGS researcher will let you know the photocopy fee, any postage cost, and research fee.

Remember – the Fee Schedule pertains ONLY to resources we hold in our collection. If you need information from resources located in the local area that we do not hold within the library, email us with the details OR write us (including a self-addressed stamped envelope). Depending on what it is you need and where it can be found, we might be able to help you!

Reach out to the library with any questions about the fee schedule for research.

Email all look-up requests to using ATTN-LOOKUPS as the message header OR send your requests to
