Research Request


Volunteer members of the Branch will depend on availability, do a reasonable amount of research into your questions on Brant County genealogy or local history via mail – electronic or regular.

Please use the research request form on this page to submit your request. You can authorize the hours you wish to pay for on the research form, or you can ask for a quote for research time. Fees help to cover the cost of maintaining our Resource Centre.

For a simple look-up (birth, marriage or obituary, tombstone inscription) or to request a quote for research the fee is $15.00. The fee for more extensive research is $25.00 per hour.

All fees must be paid before any work will be completed.

Fees can be paid as follows:

  • in Canada by cheque or money order or by using your credit card via Stripe (at the foot of this web page)
    ● in the US by cheque in US funds or by credit card with Stripe
    ● elsewhere in the world by Stripe in US funds

Make all cheques or money orders payable to Brant County Branch, OGS

Wherever possible, the information will be sent to you by e-mail in electronic format. If you want your information sent by regular mail, additional charges for photocopies, handling, and postage will be included in the quote.

The turnaround time for research depends on the amount of work requested and the availability of volunteers. Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for the research to be completed
