Research Request Form

Archives Research Request Form

The Archives of the Salvation Army Canada and Bermuda Territory welcomes research inquiries from members of the Church and from the general public. Reference questions are answered in the order in which they are received; however, officers and staff of the Salvation Army receive priority assistance. Research requests should be submitted via the form below. Access to Salvation Army records is governed by an official Access Policy.

The Archives provides thirty minutes of complimentary research. After the initial thirty minutes, Archives staff will contact researchers with a summary of the search results and an estimate of any applicable Services and Fees. Officers, Divisional and Territorial Staff are exempt from normal and routine fees. Please review the fee schedules prior to submitting a request.
Note that family and genealogical records of individual Salvationists may not be held at the Archives. Records of births, marriages, and deaths as well as church/Corps membership of families are maintained by the individual Corps.
For more information, see Genealogical Research in Records of the Salvation Army Canada and Bermuda Territory.
