Custom Services

About our Custom Services

Although the Jackson County Database is the most complete resource of its kind available for this area, there are times when you need information that's customized to your specific needs. Our Custom Services are designed to help you in these situations.

Perhaps you have historical memorabilia in your possession, and you'd like to find out more about the historical context and ensure that they're properly cataloged and preserved for future generations. Maybe you'd like to learn more about a specific ancestor, but are finding it difficult to navigate the many resources scattered throughout our region.

This can aid in developing future ad campaigns with historical references, in highlighting your business's impact on the local community over the years, or can simply help you get clutter out of your office. The standard fee for business archival services is $50 / hour, but may vary depending on the size and scope of the project. Archival materials will be charged separately. The following business archival services are available:
