The Shelby County Historical Museum is a premier place to conduct family research
We have a knowledgeable and friendly staff who cannot wait to help you with your research questions. Our comfortable reading room is a great environment to come and get some hands-on experience with your family's history. Additionally, we have a fantastic climate-controlled library that houses over 2,500 historic books!
We realize that not everyone has the time to come to our facility. As such, we offer research services as well! If you have a research request, you can pay a nominal fee of $20.00, to compensate for the time of our resident scholars, and trust that we will discover all we can. However, this service is also free to members!
