Due to the popularity of MHSBC's genealogical services, we are experiencing a backlog.
Could people please restrict themselves to five items per week, including genealogy look ups, requests for copies of obituaries, and EWZ records.
So altogether just 5 questions - could be a combination - eg. one look up, one obituary, and 3 EWZ records per week.
Thank you.

Email questions regarding genealogy to: genealogy@mhsbc.com
