How SAGHS Can Help You Research

Our Research Services
The San Antonio Genealogical and Historical Society offers a research service to members and non-members. 
 
While not professional genealogists, our volunteer researchers are a dedicated group of experienced family historians. They consult records in our library, online resources and often check resources within San Antonio and Bexar County.
 
Research requests are handled on a first-come first-served basis. Some queries require in-depth research, while others can be answered quickly.
 
All research requests and questions require a payment of $30 for the first hour of research payable in advance.
 
Please download and complete the Research Registration form, enclose your $30 check, and mail it to the address on the form.

We will hold your check until our Registrar contacts you to determine if your request can be completed in an hour or if more hours of work will be needed to meet your research goal. Additional hours of research are $30/hr.
 
Research questions to the askus@txsaghs.org email address will not be answered.
 
Use the Surname Research Tool to Connect with Your Kin!
Our SAGHS members have entered surnames of persons they are researching into our database with a few details about when and where the ancestor lived. By viewing the surname list you have the opportunity to connect to others who share your interest in an individual or family.
