Genealogy and Archives Policy

Document Actions

The archives staff does not do extensive, general family research, but will search material for specific names in a specific record (i.e. an obituary for a time range from a particular community newspaper held by the library.) The fee is $3.00 per name per record, payable by cash or check to the Mascoutah Public Library. A stamped, self-addressed envelope should be sent with postal requests. E-mail requests are also accepted. These requests will be billed. If you have any questions about research requests, please feel free to call the library at 618-566-2562.
