. If you are of Scottish descent and are interested in family history then we very much hope that you will consider joining the Society. You will be very welcome. There are no formal requirements for membership, no joining fee and the annual subscription is very reasonable. You can join the Society via this page.
As a member you will not only be giving active support to the important work of the Society but you will be able to enjoy the many benefits of membership. These include our quarterly magazine, The Scottish Genealogist, where you can publish details of your interests and queries or contribute articles, substantial discounts on many of the Society's publications, free access to the Library and Family History Centre and participation in events organised by the Society.
If you are not currently a member but wish to take advantage of the discounts available to members then you can buy membership and goods at the discounted price using the same shopping cart. We will simply process your membership application and purchases at the discounted prices at the same time.
We are very keen to establish links with similar organisations around the world and welcome applications for affiliate membership.
For UK members your joining pack will include a standing order form and a Deed of Covenant, so that the Society can reclaim Income Tax at the basic rate on your subscription. We would urge you to complete these forms and return them to us.
Please note that an annual subscription runs for one year from the date of payment. For instance, if you pay on 10th October your subsciption will last until the same date in the following year.
Affiliate membership is only relevant for societies and other organisations.
