The Berne Public Library Heritage Room Staff will do onsite research for e-mail and regular mail queries for those requesting information on ancestors of our library area - primarily Blue Creek, Jefferson, Monroe, Wabash, French and Hartford Townships in Adams County, Indiana.

This work will be done as time allows.

The research fee is $5.00 an hour plus copies and postage.

Clear information related to those being researched, including all known names, dates, and places, preferably in chart form is requested as well as clear listing of information sought.

Upon completion of research, a bill will be sent itemizing information found. Upon receiving a check made payable to the Berne Public Library, the packet will be mailed first class.
