Research Requests

If you are contacting us to make a research request, please note that the Albany Historical Society has amalgamated its archives with the City of Albany History Collection.

Our archivist has access to both our collection and the City of Albany’s, so we’d welcome you to submit your request to Julie, who will be more than happy to assist.

Please note – research requests will incur a $30 minimum fee for one hour or less, and a charge of $30 per hour thereafter. Photographs sourced from the society’s collection will be charged at applicable rates (contact us for details).
