RESEARCH SERVICES

 

The Paso Robles Area Historical Society research volunteers are happy to assist you in your research. If doing your own research is not preferable or not possible, PRAHS volunteers are available to do research 

Research Services Process

1. Request: Fill out the Research Request form below. After it is received, one of our research volunteers will contact you to define the research question(s) and estimate the amount of time needed to complete the research. 

2. Payment: Payment must be received before research can begin.

 

3. Research: Research will use the Society’s collections and research databases. You may be contacted with additional questions. Should further time be needed to complete the research request, you will be notified at which time you may be asked if you would like to continue and  agree on payment for further hours of research.

4. Report: The research volunteer will prepare a summary of findings either in email format or by hard copies which may include photocopies of relevant documents and suggestions.
