Requests for genealogical research may be submitted to the library via e-mail, fax, and mail. Requests submitted in this manner by non-county residents who do not have local borrowing privileges will be charged at the rate of $5.00 per request. Any photocopies or printouts made will be charged at the rate of .25 per page.
The following guidelines apply when submitting a request for genealogical research:
We are unable to copy the entire contents of files or conduct extensive searches of microfilm. If you require more in-depth research and are unable to visit the library then we can direct you to a private individual who conducts genealogical research for a fee.
You are welcome to visit the library and conduct your research in-person. There is no charge to conduct your own research within the library (except charges for photocopying and printing). The Madison Public Library houses the Linda Vernon Genealogy Room, which is open during the library’s hours of operation (Tuesday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Thursday 9 a.m.-8 p.m.,
Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.).
