Membership of the Society

An annual membership fee is charged, which includes subscription to the Society’s quarterly journal, Familia.

For all members resident within the borders of South Africa the 2004 membership fee is R90·00 per annum.

For members joining from outside the borders of South Africa, or those who want to receive Familia in electronic format, please use the eGSSA application form.

Online membership application forms for members within South Africa are available or can alternatively be obtained from:
The Treasurer, Andr√© Heydenrych, [email protected]

All correspondence regarding payment should also be sent to the Treasurer.

All payments to the Society must be made payable to “The Genealogical Society of South Africa” by means of a cheque or postal order, or if joining the Society from outside South Africa, by means of a bank draft made payable in South African Rand, (ZAR).

Please don’t include cash when posting to South Africa.

All members, unless the Treasurer is instructed otherwise, will be allocated to a specific Branch of the Society. This excludes Overseas Members who, because they pay extra to the Society, are not administered by a branch.
