Submit a Research Request

Have a research request?

The BHS will conduct research in its library or archives to answer specific questions from the general public. If you’d like to use this service, please fill out a research request form. To defray the cost of this service, individuals will be charged at an hourly rate. 

Research requests are completed in the order they are received, however, simple requests may be fulfilled ahead of in-depth inquiries. Once the request is completed, the BHS will provide an invoice. Upon receipt of payment, the BHS will email (or mail) the completed research report.
