General Membership InformationA membership card will be mailed to new members once the application is processed. Renewing members should include a stamped, self-addressed envelope with their renewal, if a card is desired.
Since SCCGS has no central office or office manager, membership applications and renewal applications take two (2) to perhaps three (3) weeks to pass from the post office box via the secretary to the treasurer, then membership chair who, in turn, notifies the website and surname index volunteers. Generally, mail is distributed twice a month, more often during the renewal period at year end.
Our publications team processes orders within about two weeks from time of receipt. Our volunteers appreciate your patience as they accomplish their tasks on your behalf.
Surnames of your St. Clair County ancestors are posted on the "Let's Collaborate" page on the main website. Surnames may be mailed with your application or e-mailed from the "Contact" link in the Member Area.

In addition to the Quarterly, members receive ten issues of the Newsletter per year. Members may view past issues in the Member Area of the website. Queries by members may be submitted to the Newsletter Editor. Please include your contact information and SCCGS member number (located in upper right corner of the mailing label).
