Search For a Sister

ATTENTION RESEARCHERS: Please read below before filling out the request form.

The School Sisters of Notre Dame currently are in the process of consolidating their extensive archival collections in North America. This undertaking involves sorting, labeling, packing and moving thousands of boxes from eight locations into a new consolidated archives at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

During this transition, which will continue through Dec. 31, the archives will not be available for historical research, including genealogy requests, and most searching-for-a-sister inquiries.

If you have a searching-for-a sister question that involves a living sister, please continue on this page and fill out the form below. If your inquiry involves a deceased sister, please check back after Dec. 31. The SSND archivists will be happy to respond to inquiries after that date. Thank you for your understanding.

Research services are provided free of charge for up to two hours after which a rate of $20 per hour will apply. Fees are waived for School Sisters of Notre Dame and provincial offices.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for a response to research requests. You will receive a copy of any records found in the course of research via U.S. mail or email.

Please provide as much information as possible to assist us in processing your search request.
