Fill out this form to request research time for initial or new requests. Your credit card will be billed upon submission. There is a minimum of two hours to begin the research. If you already know that you'd like more than two hours of research, please use this "Additional Hours" order form instead. A staff member will also contact you if he or she determines your request requires additional hours.

Fees for this service are $35/hour for HSP members and $60/hour for nonmembers. (Members receive 40 percent off! Become a member today.) The research fee includes the cost of up to 20 photocopied pages of supporting documents. After the initial two hours, additional hours are discounted at $30/hour for HSP members and $50/hour for nonmembers.

If you decide to become a member in order to take advantage of the discounted rate for research, please first become a member, then log in to this site with your membership information to get the discounted pricing in a separate Shop order.

Research requests usually take 6-8 weeks to process. If you would like us to complete your request within 2 weeks, please use Rush Service (an additional $20/hour).

You may print out and mail a PDF version of this form to pay by check or to have your credit card billed only after the research is completed. If you have any questions, please contact or 215-732-6200 ext. 222.

Please describe your research request. Tell us: A) what you already know, such as locations and likely religious affiliation (if known); B) what you’d like to find out; C) a summary of where you’ve already looked, such as, census, etc.
