Anyone interested in family history research. The society consists
of members with no experience up to, and including, professional genealogists.
We welcome new members
To join, we need a completed membership application and dues (renewable
each year, 1 April through 31 March). To accomplish this, print out the application form (click on the link below),
complete the information, and bring to one of the Friday afternoon classes or to a regular meeting, or mail to the address
on the form along with a check for the appropriate amount:
per individual - $20/year ($10 after 1 September);
per household - $25/year ($15 after 1 September).

Benefits of membership
While the meetings are open and free to the public, there are definite
advantages to becoming a member of the society. The group affords members opportunities to network with others as well
as to receive periodic emails about events (of our society as well as other genealogical and historical organizations), news
items of particular interest to club members, updates on meetings and related events, etc. This is also achieved through the
Members Only Facebook group, set up for society members whose dues are paid in full.
Members are also invited to
present programs of particular interest to the rest of the group in exchange for a year's membership. New members
receive a "how to" welcome packet with forms and suggestions for beginning their family history research (while
people can join by mail, packets must be collected at a general meeting). Members also get the log-on information to gain
access to the Members' Only page on this website (where sign-in information is available for the Facebook page as well
as the publications of the California State Genealogical Alliance).
Members are also encouraged to participate in the society's
mentoring program, providing personal assistance to those either needing help with either beginning genealogy research or
using computers (for genealogical purposes). To become part of this new program of the society, please complete the
submission form on the Members Only page.
