Services and Fees

There is no cost to do independent research at the Northumberland County Archives and Museum. However, there are fees for extended research assistance, reproductions and use of images for publication.

Research assistance
We work with all of our patrons to help navigate and interpret the Archives and Museum's holdings.

Please fill out our Custom Scans and Reproduction Transfer Form to order reproductions. We appreciate users citing Northumberland County Archives and Museum as the source where appropriate. 


We do not hold the copyright for all records in our collection. As the user, you are responsible for securing all copyright permissions prior to use of the materials beyond private research and study.
