The Sauk County Historical Society (SCHS) maintains a large collection of historical and genealogical research material. This collection can be made available to those interested in genealogy or other historical information.
On Site Research The collection can be accessed during normal History Center hours Wednesday thru Saturday 12:00 to 4:00. SCHS members may use the archives at no cost. For non-SCHS members, a fee of $15.00 per day. The fee must be paid prior to beginning research. Photocopies of any archival materials are $.50 for members and $1.00 per page for non members.
Research via Correspondence Genealogy and other research requests received via correspondence (mail, email, or telephone) are handled by staff and volunteer researchers at the History Center.
Research requests will be handled on a first come, first served basis. Queries will be worked on as soon as possible, and could take several weeks. To submit a research request, print a copy of the RESEARCH REQUEST FORM from this web site, complete the form and send it to the History Center with the minimum payment $15.00. Research requests will not be processed until the History Center receives your form with your payment. Upon receipt of your request, it will be assigned to a researcher who will contact you as necessary. If your research requires more than one hour, you will be notified and given the option to continue the research or to receive what was discovered within the first hour of research.
