Societies and Organizations

Membership in a genealogical society is an easy and fun way to network with other family historians. Besides the national and state groups listed here, more specialized societies exist, too — try a Web search, consult the business section of your local phone book, or snag a copy of the Hereditary Society Blue Book (Historic Trust) to find the group that best suits your needs. Online, start with Society Hall <www.familyhistory.com/societyhall/,> a comprehensive directory of genealogical societies on the Web. And try the Society Hill Directory <daddezio.com/society/>, which indexes thousands of historical societies in the United States, Canada and Australia. Society membership dues listed below are annual dues for one individual, unless otherwise indicated. If you don’t see your state represented, check your phone book for local chapters. Lineage societies such as Daughters of the American Revolution require proof of ancestry; members are then invited to join.
