New Site Maps for our website

Second is the left side navigation menu bar, with the exception of the details of the Databases link. Third is the detail links to the Index System categories. In addition, there are links to documents that briefly describe the website and the Members Section of the website.

Sample of our upcoming Monthly Newsletter

We are beginning our new digital monthly newsletter for 2015 and we made a sample newsletter, using some real information, along with some made-up information to show you what we have in mind for this new adventure. Click our Sample Newsletter to take a look! We do not have a name for this yet and we would love some ideas. If you have any ideas for a name, or ideas for content, or just plain questions or comments, please contact us at ecgsnews@gmail.com..

New Dues and Member Benefits for 2015

We have made many changes to our dues and membership benefits. Because we no longer have a Quest Editor, the Quest will no longer be produced. Instead, a monthly digital newsletter will be created that will feature officer and committee reports, member news and member queries and/or family histories. These will be included when they are submitted. The new dues are $25.00 per year per family and with this increase, we plan to add more resources to our library. Some of the ideas are a library subscription of Ancestry, or perhaps newspaper and/or obituary archives. There will be more membership benefits, such as discounts on purchases. To see more details, see the 2015 Membership Flyer. In addition, you will be able to pay for your membership via Pay Pal and submit an on-line membership application. If you have any questions about these things, please contact us at ecgsboard@gmail.com..

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!
