Our new Member Benefit Committee Meeting

We are creating a new committee to look at ideas for our Society to progress overall, such as PayPal and Ebay, and for ideas on benefits we can offer our members. There will be an initial meeting at our ECGS library room on Wednesday July 23rd, 2014 at 6:30pm for all people who would like to attend this meeting and be part of the discussion on things this committee could work on. Please be aware that will not automatically be assigned to this committee if you attend and don't want to be part of the actual committee! We do not want to scare off you or your ideas! When people get together, it helps the ideas flow and that's what we want! Please consider coming to this meeting if you can; you will be under no obligation to do anything other than listen! Hopefully, we will have some people who might like to form the comnmittee and help get some of the ideas underway, or simply attend more of the meetings. We will probably do a lot of communicating via e-mail in between possible monthly meetings. Please contact us at if you would like more details. We do have a list of ideas to begin with and we would be happy to email it to you!

Shirts may be ordered up to the Meeting of July 23rd, 2014 (above)

We will be placing an order after the July meeting for our ECGS shirts. See the Flyer for more information. Shirts

The Index System will be updated soon and this index will be available to all in the next 6 months to a year (depending on when the website is updated). See the Members Section page.

Would you like to know more about your fellow members?

Some members would like to see a Membership Book - where members can share their ancestor surnames, other organizations and skills/software they know how to use. See the Membership Book page for more information!
