All transcribers are volunteers, but material (research materials we donate to the Troy Public Library Genealogy room), computer equipment and annual web hosting all cost us money.  Why join? All dues go 100% to our project costs, so by becoming a member you are supporting the costs of creating and maintaining hundreds of records and resources. Dues are only $15/year. (Feel free to donate more!) Please make checks payable to “TIGS” and send to our treasurer (form with mailing information linked in the pdf below).

The Troy Irish Genealogy Society has its own mailing list on RootsWeb. The list is used for genealogical purposes, but it also serves as a virtual meeting place. Because we may live in different parts of the country and/or the world, the list is a vehicle for us to exchange information and thoughts, refine the direction of our society and to communicate with one another in a practical way.

If you are interested in joining the mailing list, click here.

If you live locally, we invite you to attend a meeting.
