Urgent Needs

Like most things in life, membership isn't free - but for our reasonable annual membership fees, you get a lot for your money. 

Reasons to Join our Society
1. Meet people with similar interests of family history and genealogy
2. Attend monthly meetings featuring local and national presenters
3. Receive assistance from our members on your family research
4. Attend our free genealogy research clinics held twice per month ($10 per session for non-members)
5. Share our library of resources including books and cds
6. Opportunity to serve as a volunteer, coach or member of Board of Directors


Annual membership runs from September 1 to August 31 each year. Individuals may purchase a membership for $25, while institutions may purchase a membership for $30. Currently we do not offer payment for memberships online, however we are working to meet that goal to accommodate more potential members.
