Research Assistance Requests

OGSA maintains its collection of OSBs and other resources in the Minnesota Genealogical Society Library in Mendota Heights, Minnesota.  Research guidance is generally available during OGSA on-site events or arranged at other times when volunteers are available.
OGSA may be able to arrange research assistance to help find your families or translation services.  Depending on your requirements, research may be able to be performed using existing resource collections while other requests may need to utilize assistance in Germany.
Research requests must be pre-paid, and you can also arrange payments for translation services.
Please contact OGSA for more information with as much data as possible to narrow the search.  Please send your inquiries to
Please see our Library Information page for additional libraries that maintain OSB collections.
