The Wayne County Genealogical Society can no longer answer queries that take more than 30 minutes to research. If you do not need a personal answer, we will print your query in the “Wayne Ancestors” quarterly newsletter we publish. For a fee, we will do some in depth research that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • 1826 Tax List of Wayne County
  • 1850 Census of Wayne County
  • 1880 Census of Wayne County
  • Probate Court Index 1811-1918
  • Douglass’ History of Wayne County, 1878
  • Wayne County Burial Records
  • Wayne County Birth Records, 1867-1908

If you would like our volunteer to perform research for you, our research fees are $8 per 30 minutes for members and $12 per hour for non members.

If you send a request to the Wayne county Library, please do no duplicate your request with us or vice versa. We use the same facilities to work on your requests.
