Membership Dues are Due!
Hi Fellow Members of the Jonesborough Genealogical Society,
It is that time of year when your Treasurer sends a Reminder to members about Renewing their Membership for 2015.
I realize that some of you have already paid your dues and the Board appreciates your continued support. If you are
not sure if you owe dues for 2015 – please email me or call – and I can check the records. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you all received your Newsletter. We are hoping to get them out on a regular basis. That is one of the reasons
for the first increase in the dues, in a long time. The yearly dues are now $15.00 for an individual and $20.00 for a Family
Membership (people in the same household). The JGS calendar year is still the same May 1st to April 30th.
We hope this increase in dues will help us to be able to offer more programs and research trips as a group.
Please mail your dues payment and any changes to: Jonesborough Genealogical Society, 200 Sabin Drive,
Jonesborough, TN 37659.
If you have any suggestions as to programs you would like offered – please let us know. If you have not heard about the
workshop being offered in July – go to the website to read all about it.
If you have had a change of address or email address – please email me with the update – so we do not lose contact with
If renewal dues are not received by Aug.1st – you will be transferred to the inactive list and not have access to the
Surname Registry. The Surname Registry allows members to see the Ancestral names other members are researching and allows them to contact each other to possibly exchange information or find a long lost relative.
Again, thank you for your support. Chad Bailey is the acting editor of the Newsletter. He will welcome stories to add to the Newsletter concerning your research, brick walls or unexpected family discoveries, etc.
We hope to hear from you soon.
