The Michigan Tech Archives is updating its list of local independent researchers. The Archives does not employ these individuals, but keeps the list in the hope of matching the needs of these local researchers with the needs of Archives’ patrons and genealogists who may be unable to travel to the Copper Country to undertake their own research projects. Although our primary interest is to support use of our collections, researchers on this list may also be contacted for projects involving research at local records offices, cemeteries, and other archives.
Our current list is posted here.
The Archives takes no involvement in setting fee schedules for this sort of research and will not include fees as part of its listing. It is up to each individual to establish their own operating procedures, manage contact with patrons, and bear responsibility for the outcome of their work. The Archives’ only role is to maintain a listing for the convenience of our researchers. The Archives bears no responsibility for the quality of this work and reserves the right to remove individual listings at any time.
To be included on the updated list, please complete and return the Researcher Interest Letter to the Archives. To be clear: this list of independent researchers will be posted on our website, and will be publicly distributed. By signing and returning this form, you are giving your permission to distribute your contact information.
Contact Archives’ staff for any additional information about this program.
