      In response to a query in October, 1998, the Wisconsin State Historical Society indicated that copies of applications submitted for the Pioneer/Century certificates are on file in their Archives Division. The standard copying fee is $15.00 plus 20 cents per page for non-Wisconsin residents and $5.00 + 20 cents per page for Wisconsin residents. The society will bill, so prepayment is not necessary.

      When requesting copies, patrons should refer to Series 615, Pioneer and Century Family Certificates. In addition to listing the subject's name, please also include the appropriate Contact Number designated above. You may request copies of the applications by writing to:

      The Century/Pioneer program is handled under the auspices of the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society. If you would like to learn more about the program or submit an application for Century or Pioneer status, you will need to write to (no phone service is available) the State Genealogical Society. Although the State Historical Society of Wisconsin Archives Division houses the application materials, it has nothing to do with approving the research or issuing the certificates. The Historical Society cannot answer any questions about the application process. For additional information on the Century/Pioneer program write to:
