Local Researchers for Hire

Interested in researching Copper Country history or tracing your family roots but are just to darn far away to visit the Michigan Tech Archives and Copper Country Historical Collections for yourself?

Although research is best done in person, there are alternatives. -- Photograph of Francis Jacker from the Keweenaw Digital Archives, Image #:MS042-040-T-182

As a courtesy for those who aren’t able to visit the Upper Peninsula, the Michigan Tech Archives offers a list of independent researchers for you to contact. You can make arrangements with these individuals to undertake research for you, from looking up an obituary in a historic newspaper to gathering background information for a book and more.
