Research Request Form


If you can’t come to us, we can get information to you

Not everyone who is interested in Anoka County can make it into the History Center. Whether you are researching a family member or a specific event, we can help.

Due to limited time and staff, we have a $20.00 per hour research fee. We do a brief initial search (approximately 15 minutes) for free, to determine whether or not we have relevant resources. We do not read microfilm for obituaries unless the exact death date is known.  Photocopies are 25 cents per page, plus postage if we are mailing them to you.

Please fill out and submit the request form below. After we receive your request and do the initial search, we will contact you regarding the research process and any fees involved for your specific inquiry. Frequently, we can find answers during our initial search.
