Genealogy and Local History Research Request Form

The Massillon Public Library accepts online requests for genealogy and local history information. Please fill in the following information completely. We will not begin research unless we have complete contact information. Please do NOT submit obituary requests via postal mail.

Specify the exact information you would like to obtain. Please do not request “all” information about a certain person, family or event.

Simple obituary requests (where you provide name/date/page from the Obituary Index) are a flat $2.00 charge.

Due to an unusually high volume of obituary requests, please allow up to 14 business days for us to process your request. We will respond to all requests in the order in which they were received.

For other local history and genealogy inquiries, contact the Reference Department at 330-832-9831, ext. 312.
