Library Based Research

Society volunteers are available to carry out research for members and non-members at a cost of £10 per hour. This service uses parish registers and other sources at the Society Library covering the North West Kent area. We cannot guarantee a result but we will do our best to answer your enquiry.

Please print and complete the Research Request form and post or email to the address above. You will need to give the name of the person you wish researched, date of birth/baptism/marriage (estimated if not sure) and any other details you may have. We will carry out a five year search.

Payment For This Service

You should send a payment of £10 (in sterling, UK requests only) with your request. You can make payment via our online shop. This is the only method available if you live outside the UK. If you wish to pay by this method, please click here to go to our shop.

The charge is in units of £10.00, Please do not send cash. We will also let you know if it is felt that further research would be of benefit. Results of the research can be sent either by post or as an email attachment. We are not able to carry out blanket searches of a surname.

The cost of £10 per hour is non-refundable. Researchers are only available one day a week so please be patient and allow four weeks for a reply.
