Services and Fees

Researching in Person

  • Perth County Residents researching in person: no charge
  • Non-Perth County Residents researching in person: $5.00 per day or $30.00 per year

Microfilms and basic reference books like cemetery transcriptions and township histories are kept in the Reading Room for self-service use as needed.

All other research materials,  including clipping files and photographs, are retrieved from the separate Collections Room every half hour from 10:30 am – 3:30 pm. Researchers may find it convenient to arrive at least 15 minutes before a retrieval to have time to identify records to request and fill in the request forms for them.

Researchers with limited time on the day of their visit(s) who plan to use a significant amount of records can request that retrievals from the Collections Room be done ahead of their arrival.

These requests can be made by calling or emailing the Archives a minimum of 24 hours before the planned visit.
