November is the beginning of the 2015 membership season for the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS), and it is time every year when I take a look at my genealogical needs and budget for the next year.
There is no question that I will continue my membership at the OGS, but I think that I will expand my membership to include a number of branches that I have not previously belonged to – at least three more branches that I am considerating.
To learn more about the benefits of membership, go to http://www.ogs.on.ca/joinogs.php
Your membership is valid until December 2015. New members take advantage of a bonus two months of membership by joining now and activating your membership immediately.
And there is news for renewing members who renew before Dec. 31, 2014 . They will be entered into a draw for $900 worth of courses from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies at http://www.genealogicalstudies.com/
You can join online by going to http://www.ogs.on.ca/integrated/integrated_account_new_step1.php or you can mail in your membership by downloading the membership form at http://www.ogs.on.ca/integrated/integrated_account_new_step1.php
I will also renew my membership in the British Isles Family History Society of Great Ottawa (BISFHGO) at http://www.bifhsgo.ca/, the National Genealogical Society (NGS) http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/, the Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia (GANS) http://www.novascotiaancestors.ca/, and I already belong to the Quebec Family History Society (QFHS) http://www.qfhs.ca/.
To what societies are you planning to join.
