The Ohio Genealogical Society gives its members valuable benefits including:

  • Members-only access to resources on the OGS website (including Ohio marriages, Ohio births, Ohio divorces, and Ohio Civil War soldiers)
  • Free Admittance to the Samuel D. Isaly Library, including free access to additional resources, free classes, and discounts on copies
  • Discounts on any publications and store items (website or at the library)
  • Opportunity to join 6 OGS lineage societies
  • Discounts on OGS Conference, OGS Fall Seminar, and OGS Genealogy Librarians Seminar

Standard membership includes electronic publications. For an additional charge, members may receive printed publications instead.

In our ongoing efforts to minimize expenses and streamline your membership processing, please note that when joining the Ohio Genealogical Society online you are opting in to our auto-renew process. This saves the society the time and costs of sending out electronic and/or paper reminders. You are able to turn off auto-renew in your dashboard. The Ohio Genealogical Society itself does not save your credit card information, but rather it is securely encrypted by our bank. Membership in the Ohio Genealogical Society is non-refundable.

Paper versions of the Award-winning Ohio Genealogy News and the Ohio Genealogical Society Quarterly will be delivered to you via USPS mail using the address we have on file.  This product is only available with an Active Membership and should be ordered at the time of purchase or renewal.
