Membership Dues
Membership is $10 for the year's annual dues – our membership year runs January-December. Those joining during the last four months of the year will receive the balance of the membership year for free and their dues will be credited to the following year. Example: someone joining and paying their dues in September would be considered paid through December of the following year. Funds collected are used for the Society's activities, including guest speakers, material handouts, and the purchase of genealogical resources and equipment.
