Need Some Research Assistance?

JUNE 2022: As Our Research Director is absent for the time being on medical leave, we regret that we are forced to suspend our normal offerings of providing research for members and others. We are working to develop sufficient volunteer capacity to allow us to resume this service. When we do, we will announce it on our website and via social media.

Kindly, DO NOT make a payment in advance before speaking with a member of the Kennebunkport Historical Society staff. To fill out a research request form, please click here

We would be happy to help. For a small fee, our research professionals will conduct searches of our archives. A specific search for basic records such as obituaries, church records, and house histories is a $10 fee. Broader research and genealogy inquiries are $35 per hour (upfront communication will determine the expected research time if more than one hour). This fee includes thorough searches through several relevant sources, collaboration with other research professionals (if needed), up to 5 photocopies, and postage.

High-resolution photographs are available for purchase/download at $5 per.

Members at the Contributing level and higher are entitled to 2 complimentary hours of research.

We may not have the information you are seeking. Refunds will not be issued; Payments submitted without a consultation will be considered a donation to the Kennebunkport Historical Society.
