Independent Researchers for Hire Please note: Researchers for hire are not Connecticut Historical Society employees.

Inclusion on the independent researcher list should not be viewed as an endorsement of the quality of the researchers’ work. The Connecticut Historical Society is not responsible for any arrangement made with independent researchers. Such arrangements, including the character, extent, and cost of the work, are purely private, contractual matters between the independent researcher and you. It also is up to you to determine whether or not the researcher’s experience and qualifications meet your needs.

When contacting an independent researcher, it may be helpful to have on hand:
