Requests for Research Assistance (Inquiries)
Requests for research will be handled by UOVGG volunteers who will search the UOVGG library holdings, as listed on our website, and will do their best to locate the information you are seeking.
UOVGG members are entitled to three free requests annually, although we welcome donations to cover costs such as scanning, photocopying and mailing.
For non-members a deposit of $25 will be required for up to two hours of research done by volunteers, searching in the UOVGG library holdings. That fee must be submitted before the research will commence. If further research is warranted, an additional fee of $25 will be levied for each segment of two hours. The client will be notified before any further research is done, and the fee must be received before that research begins. A complete list of all sources researched will be sent with the results of the search. Please send your e-mail address, if any, to facilitate communications.
Contact the UOVGG at firstname.lastname@example.org or the mailing address provided below.
Tips on Making Research Requests
Before you ask for UOVGG research assistance, try reading some tips and hints on our Tips for Beginners page.
Please include information on sources you have already checked, along wth any details you have that could aid the search. All requests must be specific. The name must be accompanied by an approximate time period and location in Renfrew or Pontiac counties. Please indicate if you wish a particular library resource checked (e.g. a particular family history).
Be sure to include your contact information, including mailing address, phone number and e-mail address (if available and e-mail contact is acceptable). All contact information is protected by the UOVGG and is not for publication (for details see the UOVGG Privacy of Information and SPAM Policy information on our Order Form page).
