Our fees have not changed in many years; however, an increase in expenses makes some changes necessary. Effective January, 2016, the charge for annual memberships will be $15; business and institutional memberships will be $15; and, lifetime memberships will increase to $150. There are some immediate changes to our Research Policy, as well. Before research can be done, a $5 payment will be required for the first three names. The cost of copies made will be 25 cents per page plus postage. Sincerely, Fulton County Historical & Genealogical Society Board Judy Heffren/Wickert,Corresponding Secretary
