Researchers may access all publicly available collections during a visit to the Archives & Records Management Office. However, certain records are “closed” – that is, no access is permitted under normal circumstances. Most closed collections will be available for research, once they have been processed. In the interim, Diocesan Archives & Records Management staff provides a research service so that you may still obtain information from those collections. The research service is available for a fee of $25 per hour.
Please use our Online Paid Research Request form or download a copy of the form and send it in with the fee. We will follow up with a report of our findings. No information will be released until the full fee is received.
