The Elizabeth Township Historical Society is a non-profit organization with an all volunteer staff, and the fees for research are reasonably priced and go toward maintaining the library. Members can access the library free of charge, while non-members are charged only $5 for a day of research. Non-members are offered a membership for only $25 if they wish, and can come to the library for any of their research needs for no charge after that, during that calendar year. (Adjustments will be made for end of the year requests.)

Copies made when researching in the building are $.15/page for members and $.25/page for non-members.

Limited historical and genealogical research at the Elizabeth Township Historical Society through the mail is done by our resident genealogist, Mrs. Ellen J. Ballas.

All requests must come in writing accompanied by a check or money order made out to the Elizabeth Township Historical Society
