Wise Words

  • We are the children of many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn ... betrays its ancestor.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
    Mark Twain

  • Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards.
    Unknown

  • He who has no fools, knaves, or beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.
    English Proverb

  • In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
    Alex Haley, Roots

  • We've uncovered some embarrassing ancestors in the not-too-distant past. Some horse thieves, and some people killed on Saturday nights. One of my relatives, unfortunately, was even in the newspaper business.
    Jimmy Carter
    Former U.S. President

  • There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings.
    Hodding S. Carter

Membership

The NWMGS welcomes anyone interested in genealogy.  Membership dues are $20.00 per year for those living in the United States; $30.00 for those living outside of the United States but within North America; and $40.00 for all other foreign addresses. You can pay your dues by cash, check, or through PayPal by contacting Connie.

Included with a membership:

  • one copy of The Journal, published bi-annually
  • the newsletter, published quarterly
  • UNLIMITED access to research resources at the library
  • a 10% discount on Society publications
  • surname inquiries for members are also placed in the NWMGS Journal and on the website at no cost

There are three (3) membership types - annual, 3-year, and 5-year. A $5 discount is provided for a 3-year membership ($55 vs. $60). A $10 discount is provided for a 5-year membership ($90 vs. $100). These multi-year options save members the hassle and expense of writing checks and mailing them each year, as well as the necessity of remembering what month of the year their membership expires. They also save both member and the NWMGS precious time and resources. Please consider one of these multi-year options for your NWMGS membership!

A NWMGS membership also covers both adult members of a household - no need to pay extra for having your spouse/significant other on the same account.
