Cornerstone Genealogical Society Membership
Yearly Memberships are for the calendar year (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31), and memberships will be accepted at anytime during the current year.
All Yearly Memberships will expire December 31st, regardless of when memberships are submitted.
Benefits of membership include:
CORNERSTONE CLUES This publication of the society is printed quarterly. Each issue contains valuable information in the field of genealogy. For example, Bible, Cemetery, Court, Tax, Military, and Census records as well as family histories are included in each issue. Members are invited to submit list of families they are searching for, or genealogical queries for publication in the CLUES. Members who want to have their name, address, email address, and/or phone number published along with their query, must submit a signed authorization giving us permission to publish such information. This "Authorization to Publish" is included at the bottom of the membership application form.
RESEARCH SERVICES Our volunteer staff provides research service for its members who are researching their personal genealogy and family history. Our only additional charge is for postage as well as $0.50 for each photocopy. Please note that this service is for members only, for their personal use. Our staff does not search outside of our library. If you wish a search made in the Courthouse or other libraries, you will need a researcher. We do not have a list of professional researchers available at this time.
A few search guidelines will be very helpful in directing our search, if known:
1. Full name of the person / family about whom you are asking.
2. Gives dates: birth, death, marriages, etc. (or approximate)
3. Give the town or townships where this person / family resided.
4. If known, give any relevant
names: parents, siblings,
of a spouse, children's names, or names of children's spouses.
MONTHLY MEETINGS General Membership Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month with the exception of December. Refer to Calendar of Events or contact our library for further information and guest speaker schedule. These meetings are open to the public as well as the membership.
