The Research Committee is a volunteer based committee, which is dedicated to helping the community with general research on Nashua history and genealogy. The Research Committee uses the resources found within the Society's library and museum.
Research Policies & Fees
For patrons who choose to conduct their own research, there is no charge to use the Society's library. The library is a non-lending library and is open to the public (Tues - Thurs, 10am - 3pm). The patron will be briefly assisted by a Research Member to the proper resource(s) and shown how to properly use the resource(s) available. No new research is conducted after 3pm.
Patrons who are unable to visit the Society need to fill out the Research Request Form and a member of the volunteer Research Committee will be available to provide research service at the following rates:
First Hour of Research: Free. However, a $5.00 minimum donation per request is suggested.
Additionally, there is a $5.00 charge for copies, postage, and fax.
Most research requests fall into this category.
If it is determined that the research request will take longer than one hour, the patron will be notified by a member of the Research Committee.
Fees After One Hour:
Rates Members Research fee $20.00 per hour. Shipping, postage, copies, fax $5.00
