Society Membership Renewal and Giving Back

Most family history and genealogy societies operate on a calendar year membership basis. You've probably received reminders about renewing your membership for 2018. Did you procrastinate? I did on my membership in the Society of Genealogists finally getting it renewed online on Thursday.

Canadians can reduce their tax bill by making a donation to a society, like BIFHSGO, OGS and most others online before the end of the year.
Remember too that the same deadline applies for donations to other worthy charities, such as your local food bank. Cash goes much further than food purchased for the same amount placed in a collection box, and you get a tax receipt.
