Have a Question?
Contact Us Today!
Research questions that can be answered over the phone or by email with one resource and under 15 minutes of research time may be answered if volunteer/staff time allows at no charge, although donations are appreciated.
More extensive research requiring more than 15 minutes of staff/volunteer time to answer will require a research fee of $20/hour. This professional research service can be arranged by contacting staff and a minimum of $20 will be charged whether an answer is found or not after the 1 hour of work.
