This page features Internet sites and Library resources to help you begin researching your family history.

The Massillon Public Library accepts online requests for genealogy and local history information. Please specify the exact information you would like to obtain, do not just request "all" information about a certain person, family or event. Please do NOT submit obituary requests via postal mail.

Simple obituary requests (where you provide name/date/page from the Obituary Index) are a flat $2 charge.

For in-depth searching, we provide up to one hour of research at no charge, after which you will be invoiced at the rate of $10 per hour. If the search should continue over one hour, we will contact you to discuss your preferences for further research.

All photocopies will be invoiced at .25 per page, even those done in the first hour of searching.
