Genealogical Research


The Dover Public Library charges a $50.00 non-refundable fee for historical and genealogical research, or $10 per obituary, provided to non DPL card holders.  This fee, payable in advance, includes 1 hour of professional research and up to 10 photocopies.

Please forward your check, made out to the Dover Public Library, to:
