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 which lists 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 on-going Special 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. Be sure to check our Online Catalog (pending) to see if we hold the resource you want us to search, and be sure to include in your request the name of the book, the author, the call number and the surname of your target individual. If you’re using surface mail, PLEASE enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope, and a check to cover the cost of photocopies; don’t send cash. If you’re emailing your look-up request, the SIGS researcher will let you know the photocopy fee and any postage cost.

Always discuss fees and other charges with the researcher before he or she begins the search.

Remember – the Fee Schedule pertains ONLY to resources we hold in our collection. If you need information from resources that we DON’T hold, 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!
