Record Retrieval Services

Need something from the NJ State Archives? I can retrieve records and deliver them to you in digital format, usually within one week. If the record isn’t there, I will provide you with a research log documenting all of the sources I searched. I offer the follow flat rate services:

Keep in mind that the NJ State Archives staff will only conduct record searches for vital records through 1916. They won’t retrieve records from 1917 or later. They charge $10 for a single year search and $15 for a two year search. Records from 1917 or later must be requested from the NJ Department of Health. Their fees start at $25 per record + $12 shipping. And they don’t deliver your records within one week! Let me save you time and money!

Need Records?

Please send me an email detailing the records you need from the NJ State Archives. For flat rate searches, I’ll send you a Paypal invoice by email, which must be paid in full before I retrieve the records for you. In most cases, I’ll have the records or research log to you within one week of your payment. If I am unable to retrieve your records within a one week time frame, I’ll let you know when I send you the invoice, before you pay.

For more complex record searches (deeds, wills, court records, etc.) or for multiple vital records, I can also offer an hourly research rate of $35/hour if you prefer. Please email me to discuss your research needs.
