Our members offer research assistance for ancestors who lived in Shelby (Richland County) and surrounding areas. When requesting information about an ancestor, please provide as much information as possible, including possible dates of birth, death, marriage, if known, and a research question you would like to have answered. If you are looking for multi-generational information, one of our genealogists may be able to help on a fee basis.
Members are also available to travel to the Richland County Courthouse and Health Department to retrieve records. Fees start at $20 per hour plus copying costs. If a certified copy is requested, the prevailing courthouse charge applies.
