The genealogical resources at the
County Archives of Carbon County are among the heaviest used records
of the archives. Most of the records are on microfilm and are available
for searching by patrons. To aid researchers who cannot visit the
county archives, we provide a limited reference mail service. This
service is intended as a preliminary search. There will be no attempt
to identify an ancestor or construct a genealogy. For each individual
to be searched, please provide the name to be searched, the approximate
years the person lived in Carbon County, and the borough or township
in which they resided. All information provided will be helpful
in locating your request.
To utilize this service, a cost of $2.00 per person
requested, $2.00 per reference source, and $.75 per page is required.
