We try to keep our members' contact information up-to-date, including current e-mail addresses. If you have changed addresses, are unsure if we have yours, or would prefer announcements be sent to a different email address, please forward this information to our Email Database. We use your email address in two ways. First, it allows our Reporter and Membership staff with a means to contact you individually. Second, it provides us with the means to contact our general membership to announce programs, call for volunteers and update you with last minute schedule changes. By using your e-mail contact as a resource, we can keep members up dated quickly while keeping mailing costs down. Reminder postcards are expensive. We welcome your use of email to us to advise us of changes in your current address, phone number and other membership information. The cost for newsletters returned and then resent to new addresses is enormous. Your email addresses are only used in these two ways.
Members only may attend the Area Research Groups and Society scheduled research trips. Pre-registration is required for the Beginner's Classes. Non-members are allowed one free query (which must follow Society guidelines) which will be published in online and in "The Reporter" at the discretion of the editors.
The Society does research for a fee for individuals (refer to Research Requests for details regarding specific information and international requester details). A list of persons for hire will be mailed upon request. When writing for information, include a self addressed stamped envelope and an email address, if you have one.
