Membership in the Immigrant Genealogical Society

Thinking of becoming a member? Wondering what the benefits of membership are?

  • Members receive a subscription to the monthly IGS Newsletter, full of news of what’s happening at the society, and around the genealogical globe. Newsletters are sent by email, but with an additional fee, newsletters can be received by first class mail.
  • Free admission to The Immigrant Library in Burbank, California, whereas a donation of $5 is requested for each visit by a non-member.
  • Discounted rates to some events and workshops (when applicable).
  • Access to a community of genealogical researchers with expertise in German Genealogy. All are invited to join us on the Second Sunday of each month, but members are especially encouraged to come share their knowledge, knock down brick walls, ask for advice, or show-and-tell in the Spotlight Segment!
  • Membership and donations are tax-deductible.
  • Satisfaction of supporting a community dedicated to researching our German heritage and ancestry.
  • Participate in elections at the IGS Annual Membership meeting, held on the Second Sunday of November at 2:00 PM Pacific Time.

We hope that you decide to join us!
