Anyone with an interest in genealogy or local history is welcome to join using our Online Join or membership form
. New members joining after September will be credited with the following year of membership. Contributions are welcome from anyone. Included in your dues is the quarterly Newsletter published by the Society. It contains such things as cemetery records, interesting genealogical finds, queries, new books available at the Library, etc. Members are urged to contribute material.
Members are requested to submit ancestor charts (five generations, if possible), and to contribute as much genealogical material (family group sheets, Bible records, obituaries, etc.) as possible. These are filed to share with those searching the same lines. Contributions of prepared family books or pamphlets are appreciated and are filed in like manner. The Society also maintains a sumame file of "who is hunting whom" and promotes genealogical projects such as indexing and printing early court records, maintaining an obituary file etc.
