[CA-SCGS] The Searcher: Changes in the Delivery of the Searcher

The Searcher
Changes in the Delivery of the Searcher

Membership Renewal starting 2019 with Extra Charge for Printed and Mailed Searcher

As printing and postage costs have risen, many genealogical societies no longer print their magazines.  While a number of our members have switched to a digital, rather than a printed The Searcher, most members are still receiving a printed issue.

As of January 2019, when a member renews their membership, their dues will remain at the same level as in 2018, but there will be a $10 surcharge per year for the printed and mailed The Searcher.  

All members will still be able to access The Searcher by logging into their account and clicking on the button Members-Only Resources.
