Genealogy Reference and Research Services
Genealogy questions can be answered by phone, email, or written letter. Examples of phone inquiries would be questions about what the library owns, an address, or information on a research topic. The staff is not able to look up names or conduct any kind of in-depth research over the phone. We are also unable to make long distance phone calls or faxes so email communication is best for those out of state who wish to request information. A limited amount of research, including census or Indian roll look-ups, can be conducted by letter or email to 8316 E. 93rd St., Tulsa, OK 74133 or email@example.com.
For a copy of an obituary in the Tulsa Tribune or Tulsa World, contact the Research Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. Newspapers and city directories dating back to the early days of Tulsa can be requested through the Research Center.
Photocopying and printing is 10 cents per page.
About the Genealogy Center
Welcome to the Genealogy Center Research Guide!
We are one of the largest genealogy collections in Oklahoma. The collection consists of books, microfilm, microfiche, maps, and online databases. This collection focuses on research mostly within the United States with some of our largest material holdings pertaining to Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. We also have print and electronic resources on military, immigration, and family records and histories.
All of our resources are free to use for those with a Tulsa City-County Library card. The only cost is for printing: 10 cents per page for black and white, $1 for color. Out of town guests, can purchase a guest pass for computers for $2 for a 90 minute session.
