Because the handwritten records are difficult to read for a number of reasons, it is extremely time consuming to research them. 

  • The paper is fragile and the inkis faded in many instances.
  • Some records require translation from Latin.
  • Records prior to 1950 are not indexed and require line by line examination.

  • Prior to 1925: Add $20
