Fenton History Center has volunteer researchers who assist visitors with their research and who answer written research requests. The fee for using this service at the museum is $8.00 per day per researcher. Members use the library for free as a benefit of membership. The research fee for mail inquiries is $30.00 per item.
Guided by the information provided in the request, the volunteers will check the library book collection, family files and archival materials for additional information. Research materials outside the Fenton History Center are not consulted by the volunteers. A form to request research is provided for your convenience or a letter with information about the topic to be researched may be sent with a check to the Fenton History Center Library. We also accept credit cards over the telephone for research fees. Call us at (716) 664-6256 to take advantage of this service.
