The Twin Ports Genealogical Society Research Committee is made up of volunteers willing to help you with your genealogy questions.

You can contact us for assistance in one of two ways:

1) by sending an e-mail to with "Research" in the subject line

2) by sending a letter to Twin Ports Genealogical Society, 1626 London Road, Suite 726, Duluth, MN 55812 with a business sized self-addressed, stamped return envelope included.

Please include your specific questions in your correspondence to us. Tell us what information you know about the family you are researching and what you would like to know. If you would like a specific document, such as an obituary, please specify.

Please include your e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number so that our volunteers may contact you to clarify your request or to pass along the information that we have gathered.

We do not charge for our volunteer's time, but donations to the Twin Ports Genealogical Society are gladly accepted.
