PLEASE NOTE: On this form, we welcome brief questions or requests for copies of local obituaries. We are unable to answer questions with non-specific data, too little information provided, or questions that require extensive research. To answer requests for obituaries we will need a date of death.
Examples of unacceptable questions:
I am looking for the parents of Jane Doe. She was born in Trumbull County.
I am searching for information on the family of John and Jane Doe of Trumbull County. Whatever you can send me will be appreciated.
To help us answer your questions more efficiently, please fill out the form completely. Items marked with asterisks (*) are required.
Up to 5 citations per request may be submitted, and subsequent requests for copies should be made only after copies from a previous request have been received. There is no charge for copies sent by email. Copies sent by postal mail are $1 per page. 1-5 printed pages will be mailed with an invoice. Requests requiring the copying of more than 5 printed pages will require prepayment and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Customers should withhold payment until being notified of the number of pages printed and the amount due.
Upon request, library staff will provide a limited number of copies of non-restricted materials for out-of-town customers.
The W-TCPL reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if in our judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of the copyright law.
Staff will attempt to send copies within one week of receipt of request.
