Your research request will be fulfilled by a staff member or volunteer researcher for the Museum of Old Newbury within 4-6 weeks. Your $30 research fee provides for an initial search of our collections and written report of the findings. This will include scans of sources consulted, if applicable. If, after this initial report, follow-up research is requested, an additional $10/hour charge will apply, up to 3 hours. You will not be charged for additional research without notification and authorization.
Though our archives are robust and diverse, please understand that the specific information you seek may not be part of our collection. In this case, the $30 initial research fee will be charged, as we will thoroughly search our collections to determine that your question cannot be answered with our resources. We will also make every effort to recommend other avenues for you to continue your research.
