Queries for EssexOA


Our Library and Research Coordinator is available to answer queries about Essex County family history.

Please limit your requests to 1 or 2 queries.  Unfortunately our active members (volunteers) are unable to do your family history for you.

Depending on the query, a fee may be required.

Please provide specific information related to your query such as names, dates and locations in Essex County.  Please do not send an entire family history!  Please be specific in the information you are seeking (eg is Bill Jones b1850, died approx 1925, husband of Linda, buried in Leamington).

Please note, missing persons or adoption research requests are outside our field of expertise and involvement in these matters would infringe on privacy laws.
